i struggle with aphyds...

… no, not in the office… in my morning glories in the rooftop oasis.  i grew those little devils in water and papertowels, migrated them to their own pots, helped them climb every possible railing on the oasis, and grinned when they let forth their first bloom.

now they are sick.

insecticidial soap seems to be competing with the aphyds in sucking the life out of my glories. i am at a loss. they got another bath tonight, cool water, a good rub on each leaf, cleaning out the critters, with fingers crossed. i swear, if there’s another yellow leaf tomorrow, i’m going to jump.
