Yu remember thoze luvly fotoze ov our Crismoss tree? Well, it dident look like that fer long!
Yesterday Mummy notisst that the tree waz leekin stikky stuff onto the Crismoss cards that sheed put arownd its pot. "Hello!" she thort, "Wy iz the tree leekin stikky stuff?" an so she got her hed in close fer a good look. This is wat she fownd:BUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!They wer eetin the tree! An wherever the tree waz bein eeten, it waz prodewsin stikky sap to try to defend itself. This wassent werkin very well...... Mummy fownd harf a duzzen ov them. They wer reelly fat an mayde a satisfyin "phfut" sownd wen yu skwisht them. But altho that's kwite fun, it issent reelly wat a Crismoss tree is for.
So! Off we went, bak to the plarnt playse where we bort it from. We took the bug in the pikcher wiv us: Mummy stuk it to a bit ov parsol taype. It waz still kikin its legs abowt wen we got there.The man in the plarnt playse sed it waz an aphid, an that they must hav been hybernaytin in our tree. Wen it had been in our howse fer a few days, they thort it waz summer an so all cayme out to play an eet our tree. So the man gayve us sum bug spray:We took all the decorayshuns off the tree an put wite tishoo payper rownd its pot. We sprayd it all over and LOOK! Hundreds an hundreds ov bayby bugs dropt owt.
We kept replaysin the tishoo payper an it kept gettin cuverd wiv new ded bugs.
Weev been doin this sinse yesterday arfternoon. There duzzent seem to be eny mor left in there, but the man sed to watch out, cos there may be eggs in there, an if we stop too eerly, an put the decorayshuns bak on too soon, it will all start agen.
Hopefully weel be abol to decorayte the tree agen in time fer Crismoss.....
Meenwile, Dilly is upset. She sez she waz farmin theez bugs for her Crismoss feast...... I shud hav known sheed be behind this sumwhere......
Bye fer now!
