The Japanese Beetles are still at a civilized pick and squish number. The earwigs finally just have too much to eat. I've discovered that they like to hole-up overnight in the new leaves of the milkweed; so I'll just pull off the 3 new leaves at the top of the plant & I can count on getting 5 or so at a time that I can stomp on.
I thought the Sedum 'Matrona' was looking pretty this a.m. It takes a bit more shade than it would normally like in my garden and still manages not to flop. A really nice Sedum if you're in the market for one.
