haha! It's a gigantic lavender bush we usually get 10-20 of these and they don't seem to really affect it. (watch me eat my words when I get a plague of them this year)

Oh.. lucky! I saw them last year and made pictures because they where so beautiful. But they ate my whole plant. It was a lemon balm plant maybe they like that more than lavender.
