Damage Control

This morning I went out to check on the cuttings and seedlings that went into the ground this month. All three mums are looking great, and so are the wisteria, Butterfly weed, and "Blue Bird" hibiscus.

But my swamp milkweed has attracted some yellow aphids. They weren't there yesterday morning, so hopefully they haven't had time to do much damage. I'm going to spray them off with a hose and hope that's the end of it.
