It is bloom time

Plum is in full bloom. Peach is following close by and pear is chasing both.

Look closely. Who do you see on this picture?! I've identified those as Harlequin bugs.
Stinky, ferocious, un-relentless buggers. They usually show up sometime in June.
Well. It is NOT JUNE! But those guys were on my overwintered Arugula, having 
a party. Squashed them all.  It is only a glimpse of what awaits us this summer.
Greenthumbs everywhere - beware - this will be the buggiest year yet to remember.

I can't imagine North Carolina being any buggier than it already is... thanks for the warning!
