Every year since we’ve been here (4 summers as of memorial day weekend), we have been plagued by the japanese beetle. Well maybe not so bad in year one, but every year since. And they attack the rose bush first. This summer–nada. No yucky things on my rose bush. Check it out.

no yuckies just pretties!

Woo hoo! I’m not complaining, just saying. Guess they could come back later in the summer. They love dahlias, and alas, unfortunately, the chickens do not eat them. It’s nice to not be toting that jar full of stinky soapy water trapping them left and right all the time.
