A couple weeks ago, my four fennel plants were getting stripped of leaves. Hubby mentioned it, and asked if I wanted him to pull the culprits off and feed them to the chickens. I said, "No!" Not only do the chickens not like the taste of them, they weren't hornworms but swallowtail caterpillars. Tuesday morning, as we were feeding the chickens and rabbits, the butterflies were emerging from their cocoons. This has happened before, but this time we got pictures when one of the butterflies stayed on my hand as I was moving them up high enough the cats couldn't reach them while they waited for their wings to dry.

Now, for a bit of interesting news ... I finally signed up for a Facebook account here. It's strictly for business - critter stuff and art - no I won't be doing memes and definitely will not be acknowledging politics or currents events there. Just my critters and my art, for anyone who wants to follow along on that (and has an account).
