What Katydid….nibbled on my roses. (With apologies to author Susan Coolidge)
The first new season’s bloom has appeared on The Wedding Rose. This rose was planted earlier this year, not long after the family wedding we had celebrated.
Upon closer inspection a “wedding guest” has enjoyed a feast on this bloom.
I suspect a katydid has scissored off some tasty mouthfuls of this lovely flower. The warm, creamy petals do look good enough to eat. I may have to search for the unwanted guest and relocate it elsewhere in the garden to avoid further blooms being munched on.
Here is a link to more information about Katydids which include some stunning photos.
