Good morning GTers! I was a bit worried that this asiatic #lily decided to open up on the wettest day of the year, but it has survived! Have a good day everyone! If you're interested, my latest photo blog is available at www.bigemrg.co.uk/blog/latest 😀 #blog

Morning GTers! I love to see the #newgrowth when my #lily plants start to surface! Unfortunately there are already signs of the dreaded lily beetle on most of my plants! At least it's not raining yet! 😀

Morning 🤓 those lily beetles cause so much devastation and mess 👹

@debs69 - Yes they do, but the photographer in me kinda likes them because they're bright and colourful! 😀

Morning all , spotted a few of the little blighters on mine , but I agree Ian make good photos 👍👍

@juliesgarden - You do well to spot them! Considering they're bright scarlet I always have a devil if a job finding them! They must have an invisibility cloak or a stealth mode! lol 😀

I was told that putting a white bin liner around the plant on the floor helps you to spot them when they drop on their backs. I don't do lily's for this reason!

@sara2309 - That makes sense! They do a good job of free falling from the leaves whenever you approach! 😀
