Fishy Circumstances

Honeysuckle

The honeysuckle's swarming with aphids. I just sprayed, but my hopes are low for it looking good, especially after its problems the last two years. My hopes are even lower for the clematis. Its aphid infestation is only just beginning, but it never really recovered from being planted, and the leading growths broken. I'm more and more convinced we'll have to replace it.

Meanwhile, the rose bush is thriving and filling out nicely, and most of the other plants are doing just fine.
