The flowers are delicate and complex.
The seed pods resemble green jesters’ hats.
The leaves…ugly, whitish and sickly.
I hate leafminers. I got so disgusted with them that I chopped down the infected plants.
No use feeding the enemy! Leaf miners are larvae of a tiny fly.
The fly lays its eggs on the leaves. The hatched larvae eat their way through the middle of the leaf’s layers.
The flowers are so beautiful,
but the leaves look ravaged.
No pesticides for this gardener,
so chop chop chop.
I’ll just take photos of the blooms this spring.
