    1. Yes, and they appear to do so. I have seen quite a few of the bugs/birds on the roses, so hopefully they will help to keep the aphid numbers down.

  1. Wow!! This was really an amazing macro shot Pete! And this is probably a fraction of many aphids right now πŸ˜•

    1. Thank you, Anita πŸ™‚ You are right. This was on one small part of a rose bud of many which are coming out now. Thankfully there appears to be some ladybirds around as I don’t like spraying them.
