eight kinds of red things in my garden I did a count today of red things in the garden; field poppies – uncountable. so perhaps groups of red things would be better. rowan berries beauty of bath apples and wasp-eaten windfalls guelder rose berries (poisonous!) rose-scented geranium flowers white bryony berries. this is a member of the tropical gourd family, the only British one, and all parts of it are poisonous. honeysuckle berries and ladybirds after an aphid infested spring, suddenly there are huge influxes of ladybirds, migrating from Europe. also masses of lacewings and hey presto, no greenfly.

They’re good about eating grubs and other harmful pests, though. Reply That’s a lot of red stuff! Hope the bees aren’t getting poisoned… Reply I like it!! 😀 aispir2 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
