Junebugs. Japanese Beetles. Feasters of Flowers and Foliage.
I found this one snacking on the last of my bearded irises. Actually I found two, but the other one drunkenly high-tailed it when I caught them.
When I first started gardening, I tried Junebug traps. Which actually work, in case you're interested. But with every Junebug that perished in the trap, there were ten more happily chewing away at my roses. So I don't bother anymore...
Captain Obvious says 'Junebugs also mean that June is coming!'
June. The month of sweltering heat and the start of hurricane season.
Oh well, I get to enjoy the last part of it next weekend with four days off for my birthday! Having a birthday on May 31 in North Carolina gives me an excuse to have a last hurrah for spring.
Chuck and I are going to go up to Virginia to see Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. I'm so excited! We're also going to visit James Madison's house at the same time, which is about 30 minutes away from that. Be ready for some pictures!
I know that there have been many posts about visiting Monticello on Blotanical, but maybe I can capture something differently than everyone else. I have a knack for that. :)
