Oo-la-la: I got nearly 2" of rain last night! It all came in 30', much of which ran off, but I'm not complaining. The sun is at it's peak, drying out the ground (garden) quickly. My 2 rain barrels are full to the brim. Alas, the storm knocked my sweet corn down. Happens EVERY year, I swear! (And I do swear.)

On a good note, my goji berry bush arrived! I'm headed out to plant it right now. I already have two blueberry bushes, a gooseberry bush, plus the strawberries, red and black raspberries, and oncoming blackberries. Further, I've developed a taste for mulberries! I've ignored them for years, but grabbed a few off a nearby tree and enjoyed their flaver and seedlessness. Excuse me for saying it's a berry good year!

Not gall. Whatever it isis boring iinto the wood. And it's on the maple trees too.

I get large gall growths on my oak tree. Doesn't appear to harm the tree. I have many honeybees in my persimmon and basswood trees now! And with clover in my yard, they're having a veritable feast!

:-) Sentient, when you find spores on the flowers you know it's Delphinium. Spores are the useless looking long extensions, one on each flower. I found the name larkspur - is that the name you use?

Does anyone know what a large cluster of, small, bugs could be on my oak trees?? They're on the bark. When I took a photo they came out looking like tiny yellow jackets.
I've spent the past few hours searching the internet and still can't find them.??

Joan, ironically enough went out with Rio awhile ago - and my lantana plant has what appears to be powdery mildew on it!  Went back online to do further reading.  Discovered there a many different fungi that cause it, but all do their best in high humidity and moderate temps - and here I am in the middle of both.  Aphids apear to be the major carrier of it as you obviously know. Currently only on one plant and I'm going to spray it to hopefully keep from entire plant.

king, I understand your dismay with the way the USA is going. You take on a real adventure and being young, you probably have the stamina to make such a move. Be sure to keep in touch when you do go and let us know if it is any better in New Zealand. They do have more environmentally friendly policies, as I understand it.
