    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Love the shield bugs - they're really pretty. we get lots of the little green , quite plain ones here. Squished lots of lily beetles at ex husbands house recently which were on a lily he bought this year. Really infested with them- the lily looked so awful. Could have had a field day with a camera there Gilly!

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
