lily beetles


found more of these b…pests on my lily plants,have tried various treatments,apparently the best way to get rid of them is to keep checking your plants and squishing them between your fingers!not for the squeamish among you then!. they do ruin the appearance of my precious lilies though,so they get what they deserve!! going to my relatives in cirencester today for a few days,will be taking some photos of their gardens,some very keen gardeners up there,so hopefully i will get some good photos.also there is an arboretum nearby,if i get chance i will visit.
