I missed last weeks Friday's Flower (I was away with son #1 visiting university open days!) so I thought I'd cheat a little this week and have two!
The roses are just coming into bloom, but are looking a little sorry for themselves in the rain, and are covered in aphids. Ladybirds have been conspicuously absent this year, where are they all? I fear the cold spring has had an adverse effect on them. Hopefully they'll return and feast on all these aphids.
My second choice is foxgloves. The originals here I grew from seed, who joyfully self seeded and now there are foxgloves popping up everywhere. I love them, and so do the bees.
