Love this thread !

We have 3, very pampered pussy cats. And, two weeks ago, rescued/re-homed 2 male Degu's. These two little guys have completely stolen my heart,  they are just adorable creatures.  

I dote on all my pets. As far as I'm concerned,  I am here to tend to their every whim. Even if that means getting up to open the back door to let them out,  despite the fact they have a perfectly functional cat flap in that same back door,  LOL !

Just a Lily, woo hoo !

What a gorgeous photo. Is this a tree lily? If so, how tall is it? Just wondered. 

See original post

 Hiya wakeshine.  We have roughly 10 tree lily in a corner raised bed. The one in the picture is approximately 18" tall and our tallest is about 3'. The much taller ones have flower heads double the size of this one in the picture.  

Just a Lily, woo hoo !

Hee hee, that is a MAY BUG. They are no harm. I have several every May. 

I think they are so cute.  Although I'm terrified as soon as they take flight.

My poor lily trees are rapidly disappearing.

I have only found 3 of the darling,  devil red, demon beetles.  Also I'm regularly checking for the eggs and grubs on the underside of the leaves. But still each day more damage appears. 

From what I've read, the only way to get rid of them is to use pesticide ??? 

I hate to use it at home. At work is a different story,  needs must and all that. 

I'm only too aware of the negatives and the dangers of their useage.

is there no other way ?

Split the postage 50/50 Hosta.

Don't forget, really, you are doing me a favour having it. I really really hate chucking out any viable plant, bulb or tuber. It makes me sad.

I'm already looking forward to you posting photos of it next summer ! LOL.
