Once again our “cherry blossom hybrid tree” (not certain WHAT it is but this best describes it) is in the throes of being cryovac naturally. This seems to be an annual event once the blooms are spent, the new foliage has presented itself, then BOOM!
I have admitted defeat upon this natural phenomenon since the tree continues to bloom beautifully each year. Instead this year I decided to attempt to capture some of the action. What a different world it was!
Whilst many grubs worked feverishly away preparing their cocoon of sorts, others were like stealth ninja’s rappelling themselves from the leaves above. For hours later I felt as if there were things crawling over me.
As I danced around the kitchen attempting to rid myself of my imaginary grubs, the children would tilt their heads towards their shoulders with a look that said… “mum, how much longer?”
