|Great photo Arlene, and very useful for diagnosing problems.|

|Thanks. The Cooperative Extension Agent was very annoyed that I was upset when I called about it. How would a gardener know the plant can recover unless we're told what the problem is so we can look it up online?|

|And why should he be annoyed? That is what he gets paid to do. Help the public with their plant questions. |
We have a great Pest and Disease forum here, that has started to compile information. Eventually it may lead to a database for Pests, and maybe one for disease.

|Maybe he was just in a bad mood or maybe it was the 10th time that day he had to answer the same question.|
Should I enter the photos of the cottony scale there?

|Yes, that would be a great idea Arlene. People are getting used to going there to find what is in their gardens. |
And your photos is a really great example of cottony scale.

|I hope my tombstone doesn't reflect my experience with it.|
Thanks. I'll do it now.

|Not to worry. I won't have a tombstone with an epithet since I'll be ashes floating around on Cape Cod Bay!|

Same here. Well not the part about Cape Cod Bay.

|Of course, if I had lived my life on Cape Cod (instead of Long Island) maybe I'd want my ashes floating on Southold Bay!|

|Well I am sure glad the Hydrangea macrophylla 'Harlequin' didn't succumb to this pest. It is such a beautiful plant.|
