Lovely post! Having a bit of chat in the office about this post and we've come to the conclusion we like aphids too!Not only do they attract more predatory insects (not so lovely for the aphid) we recall cute stories about ants milking them... we found a youtube clip that illustrates... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcdAgvroj5w

Bees- I cannot find a blog about bees but it is a subject I feel I must talk about. We do not use any pesticides in the garden yet we are finding many many dead bees just laying on the patio and paths. It is very sad.

I had a similar incident here when my next door neighbour got the exterminator in to poison a bees nest in their garden. They came into our garden to die, lots of them ending up in the pond dead.  My ignorant obese neighbours failed to realise that the food they gorged themslves on came about with the help of those very bees they killed.
