What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Could you tell me what this bug is? I live in Weare NH and I see it every year about this time. It feeds on my weeping cherry, lilac and has been found amoung other plants in my perennial garden. This year I’m also finding it in my annual baskets. Any help in identifying this bug would be appreciated.
Thanks
Laura
