My reluctant relationship with these guys (potato bugs;) is on-going because they will take over if I don't!
So, instead of focusing on them I look around to remind me why I garden...
If we dwell on the bad of it
The slip and stumble sad of it
And what we wish we had a bit
More of, then we would lose
The grace and glory glad of it
The bud and beauty rad of it
The laughing, leaping love of it
That we are free to choose

I have a few more 'glad' photos to add but the internet keeps disconnecting!!! and has slowed to a potato-bug crawl!!! (actually, slower than that)
