    Normally I see loads on a small box hedge and a potted Apple tree, this year they ladybird free though chocca with aphids? Today I spotted my first lone ladybird on a daylily. Suppose some years better than others image

    I've got ladybirds everywhere, they've arrived in the past few days.  I'd been plagued by aphids until they turned up so I'm very happy image

    Same here DyersEnd, they arrived just over a week ago and are doing an amazing job in the garden and on the Runner Beans. Very late this year though. image
