I saw this little guy today, doing what they do best - eating aphids. Good thing I saw him, I was about to go make a mild soap spray and spray down the whole 8' length of vine. I hope he invites his family and friends!

Not the greatest pic, it's from my phone and I had to really zoom in.

Nice picture! What kind of vine is it, Cheryl? I don't recognize the flower or leaves.

I recently read an article that said that the five second rule is based on fact. Some outfit in England did a study introducing various foods to various surfaces contaminated with two kinds of bacteria. In most cases food picked up within five seconds was fine. Of course there were a lot of variables.

One of those variables is how hungry you are.

It looks like clematis to me.

It's a vinca/periwinkle, a nice ground cover plant.
