I live to the south of Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. Somewhat overcome by the work needed in the garden, I share bits of it! Twitter @oldgreyheron

Healthy new potted lilies from Sarah Raven have unwelcome visitors. The lily beetles I found are now ex-beetles... but are there more? Haven't seen them in the garden for more than a decade.

@hayleyaj @kathy Found two more of the beasts this morning. They really dislike being knocked off the leaves - can't bring myself to squish them with gloved fingers though! ☹️
