Happy Saturday. The flowers are pretty but I really should be weeding. What motivates you to weed?

After patiently waiting three years for the apple stick to turn into an apple tree, we're finally seeing APPLES! This makes me rather pleased.

On the other hand I'm also seeing clusters of aphid/ant "nests". Besides the fact that aphids suck (haha) does anyone know what's going on here and how to prevent this? I wound up cutting off the offending bit but would hate to see it spread.


I've not really grown poppies before. I'm loving the paper tissue quality of the petals... plus I have a soft spot for orange flowers.
