I was admiring one of my apple trees, as you do.
The flowers, a little apple (this tree’s first!), the leaves, the ladybug.
One of the more frustrating things I have found in the garden has been the absence of ladybugs. But no longer.
But wait… what’s up here then?
Quick aphids run!
OK don’t run. Get eaten. Suit yourselves.
