Cathy, I apologize for correcting any misinformation you may be sharing.  I sort of do that in groups like this when I see incorrect information being given out so that others don't use that incorrect information and they have the correct information.  I also expect people to correct me if I give out some information that is incorrect.  I know that people sometimes refer to Cicadas as locusts, but they are not locusts.  I remember people doing just that when I was a kid too.  I grew up and learned the difference and stopped calling them locusts because they are not locusts.  I also called spaghetti pasketti when I was a kid, but I stopped doing that as well.

My plan is to plant an Italian sweet basil on the west side of this rose bush to protect the canes. Both would be in a half wooden barrel. I have not tried Italian sweet basil in afternoon sun, any comments or suggestions? I thought you might enjoy seeing the bloom.

Weeks, Vavoom (cv. WEKjutono) Orange-juice orange color with a wonderful spicy fragrance.

When I need help identifying a garden insect, I have found great help on the following site. In fact, once there I become interested and spend more time than expected on the site. There is a question and answer section if you send in a photo. Enjoy!

Deborah - thanks for the info on the rose!  I have googled it and gone into rose sites here, but doesn't seem to be available.

Robert -Yes we call them Cicadas here too, isn't it wonderful when one starts and thousands of others all join in.  To me that is the sound of Summer and a sound I truly love.

Charlie - spare a thought for us real little people I am 5'2", daughter is only 5'.  In our eyes  6'1" is very tall and the ideal person we always ask to reach the high shelves in the supermarket!!

Cathy, what I call a locust is an overgrown grasshopper.  I call the bug on your granddaughter a Cicada.  They are noisy little things, especially when they are out in full force.
