Garden Help

Today has been a lazy day. I really should have worked in my garden, but fortunately I have some good helpers for my roses.

I went to bed last night with a slight fever and have been tired all day. Fortunately, other than a sore arm, the effect of the second shot has not been too bad.

Here is one of these larvae on a leaf. Do you know what they turn into?

Here is one that is emerging from the pupa stage. Perhaps you could tell from the pupa what it becomes.

Help is definitely on the way.
