Don't mean to boast but we've had a swarm of ladybirds for the last 2 weeks here!!! lol. Does this mean a good summer?

I've seen a couple of huge bumble bees recently and a hoverfly, a huge bumble bee flew just above my head earlier today.

Shows that the weather is warming up.

Haven't seen any of these sort of things yet but have seen a few bright green caterpillars in my soil recently - can anyone tell me what they are please ?

I saw just one ladybird last year. It was the first for many years. I hope you get lots more, and I hope some fly this way !

The first sign of greenfly in my garden always appears on the new shoots of my climbing rose, but so far- nothing! Good old ladybirds, they seem to be doing an excellent job so far! They seem to have arrived very early this year and in much greater numbers than i have seen for years. Excuse the pun Sticky but the greenfly seemed to have been " nipped in the bud " lol!

I had some greenfly on my climbing white franrance rose a couple of weeks ago, but nothing since.
