Friday, June 23, 2017 – Cool rainy morning, Weeding Browning Again, Asian Lady Beetle
This morning arrived with a light rain (.15” Inch)and cooler temperatures. It was a nice morning but the rain stopped by 7:30 and after the sun came out it was another warm day in the sun to work outdoors. But the cooler temps and clouds were a nice change.
And for the third day in a row we weeded the back yard garden at the Historic Home of Jonathan Browning. We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I think we may be back to do a little finish up work early next week but we are almost done.
This afternoon Elder Kyle Johnson found what he thought was a Lady Bug but it’s really the dreaded “Asian Lady Beetle.” Locally the common name for this Lady Bug impostor is “Corn Bug.” They look a lot like a Ladybug but they bite, they stink, and they are invasive. Their numbers are so great in fall that they invade homes, farms and other structures. They may help control aphids & other insects in the garden but they are stinky and messy when they invade homes.
We had a great night performing in “Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo” tonight. We had two sellout shows and the best part was Sis. Johnson and I got to play “George & Agatha” tonight. In both shows the guests were enthusiastic, loud and involved. Both audiences loved our show and the 8:15 crowd even gave us a standing ovation. We all loved it.
