I think I have to use caterpillars, and nature in general to remind myself that change is a good thing.
Would you believe me if I told you that I plant the parsley ONLY for the caterpillars?!? These little guys are swallowtail caterpillars, and I love planting the parsley year after year in the same spot, because the butterflies come back every year to lay the eggs, and then I get the pleasure of watching the caterpillars grow (and they poke out orange antenna if you startle them!)
I have the same reaction as Francesca (though I’m no gardener at all): aren’t they too dangerous for your plants? Great pictures
hee hee, and there goes francesca worried about your herbs. classic :)
yet, somehow, i find it hard to believe that the beauty of the caterpillar would go so quickly.
so it does become even more awesome, but look at this colour scheme too!!!
True. Though I hope they’re not eating your parsley!
I agree. This little guy or gal is cool!
Good point about nature reminding us that change can be good. I’ll have to remember that one!
