Finally, the rain has fallen. It watered the garden nicely and many plants came alive again. Thanks God, they have all survived the drought. There is many dry and dead leaves to remove and beds need clearing up. No wonderful autumn look this year but, Asters and Sedums are about to flower.
Colchicums appeared on the lawn as well. Wet weather brought unwanted guests on some plants - orange coloured aphids - but I do not worry about it, the plants are dry anyway. And, natural predators have already occupied the plants too - Ladybirds!
There is also lots of them on the same plants feeding on aphids! These bright orange aphids are on my Milkweed and I am pretty sure they are Aphis nerii species.
