SPOTTED LANTERNFLY ALERT - IF YOU SEE IT, REPORT IT!

Spotted Lanternfly Early Nymph

This invasive insect is spreading and it's very important to keep alert and report any sightings.

The Early Nymph stage has been seen in several areas of New Jersey (click photo to enlarge), so be on the lookout for a small, black insect with white spots; trap it and kill it.

If you see it, please report it; click on the flyer for more information and where to report it.

LILIES OF MANY TYPES AND COLORS AT THE FRELINGHUYSEN ARBORETUM

My visit to The Frelinghuysen Arboretum today was hazy and hot, thank goodness for the pockets of shade offering respite from the heat. Several hours later, we had a complete change in the weather, with strong winds and heavy downpours! Glad I was able to get some photos of flowers before the weather changed! The focus today is on Lilies and Lily-like flowers.

Enjoy!
