"It Makes a Cacocoon!"

Junior likes nothing more than to collect things. It all began with his "piltch" bug collection (now more correctly referred to as his "pill" bugs). Then it was the worm collection-"Look at the wormies! They are just so cute!" He hates slugs (Thank God), and there was an unlucky Katydid that didn't make it too long and was buried beneath the impatiens in the Shade Garden, but now it's all about the swallowtail butterfly caterpillars. We found a few last week, but had to search some more the other day.
I used to find them all over the dill. This year they are all over the parsley.


Look closely and carefully and you just might find one.
He's rather small for this time of year, but the little one from last week also was rather small, and he has grown quite a bit while the other one has "made a cacocoon! He did!!!"

A happy, grubby, face. God I hope he doesn't become fascinated with grubs...
