I was out on the balcony checking on the newly repotted succulent and cactus bowls and Smeagol decided to come over all affectionate and attention seeking. No Smeagol, I’m taking pictures of the succulents not cats. But in the end, it was too cute not to post. I’m still fighting the mealy bug epidemic. Second week of neem oil treatment done. Seems to be sort of working, although I saw loads of cotton wool-like mealy bug tell tale signs on one of the palms earlier. I’m going to persist!
