I don't think I can see what you're talking about, but I'm wondering if you have aphids. You may want to treat those before they get out of hand.

Yes, I do believe that is the beginning of a scape.

I had a horrible time with aphids last season! I don't know about your zone, but here in Ohio the ants actually farm aphids, and will take the eggs into their nest over the winter; I'll likely do battle with them again this year. Sad

mystlw if you have patience you can get rid of aphids naturally. I always get a ton of aphids in the Spring. But I refuse to spray them and the garden hose method doesn't seem to phase them. But if I just let them run rampant in the garden eventually (typically 3-4 weeks later) I start seeing ladybugs. Nothing clears out aphids like ladybugs! The first year I maybe got one or two ladybugs. But then each year I got more. Now, since they know my yard is a buffet, they lay eggs and I get generations of ladybugs that handle the aphids all season long (well late autumn is still an issue). The first year of damage is hard but trust me, the ladybugs will come and stay if they know there is a good food source. And since I'm in the middle of a major city I'm sure you'll get them quicker than I did! And yes, my ants farm aphids also.
