Aargh! Is there no end? This could be so devastating to our berry and soft fruit industry.

They've been here for a long time.. This year has been a good one for them too; unfortunately. A lot of different crop pests liked the hot and dry weather.

Was at Fall Fair on Saturday...noticed a stack of pamphlets.

These are going to mean lots of clean up.

My Honeysuckle still looks good...hope it stays that way.
