When I first spotted the lupine covered in aphids I thought I was going to have to whip out the water hose and spray them off.
But a closer look revealed that balance was already being restored, Ms Ladybug did not see an infestation, she saw a FEAST!
And she brought many of her friends to enjoy it with her.
So I walked away content to let them have their feeding frenzy, safe in the knowledge those aphids did not stand a chance.
Organic gardening at its best.
