Thanks to everyone for the aphids response. I used water and dishsoap to
blast the little scumbags (their version of a tsunami, I'm sure).  I do
have some iris next to a winter wheat field, so maybe they came over for
a little desert.  It is interesting that only the "sickly" seemed to
attract the aphids.  I wonder if they taste better? Ha Ha  Also, we have
a terrible fire ant problem so maybe they hitched a ride.
