Until last weeks, the lupins in my garden remained stubbornly unblossomed. Then the sun made a guest appearance in Ireland last week, and they all exploded into columns of colour Рabout 6 weeks later than normal. Before the flowers appeared, the plants had to survive a massive swarm of bugs Рgreenfly and assorted aphids began munching their way through the plants. The bugs in the picture above are  tough Рthe ones that survived the several applications of bug spray.
