We totally struck out last year ... not one "friend" the whole season .. let alone actually seeing a full blown adult "friend" ... it was sad ... lonely ... scary ?
BUT ? ... finally some friends have landed and made their presence known ... I planted enough dill all over the place to draw in monster butterflies if possible ... can you say monster and butterfly in the same sentence ... hum ... I think not .. we just need to know they approve and settled in their babies to munch to their hearts content!
Is it weird to get excited over caterpillars ? do I need a support group ? .. nah ! ..
When I over wintered that little guy two years ago and it became the absolute beautiful butterfly it was meant to be .. it seemed a miracle to me that the experiment worked .. so hopefully I can do it again and this will be the result once more.
