This must be the second or third flowering of my roses. I try to deadhead them, and cut them back a bit and then away comes another set of flowers. I picked a whole washing basket full last night, and they are perfuming the house deliciously.

Aphids are on our broccoli! what do I do? any helpful comments gratefully received!

Our grapes also have some kind of bug? or scale? I will try and take a picture to put up on this blog. Whatever it is, it makes a little puckered hollow on the leaves.
