The aphids are coming ....

We've seen the first aphids in the garden ... they're on our nettle patch (which we've grown specially for the Tortoiseshell and Peacock butterflies). I don't mind them being there and it would be fun to see if we can find any ants 'milking' then for honeydew. We'll keep an eye on them .. if nothing else the ladybirds will like them. I just don't really want them to move onto my vegetable patch!
