I went out to look at the herb patch this morning and we are inundated with swallowtail caterpillars! I am so pleased. We have had a few so far this season but today we had at least 15 swallowtails caterpillars of various sizes all on our three triple curled parsley plants.
We have been gently removing them from the single curled parsley and dill and placing them on the triple curled and they sure seem to like it.
I don't remember seeing any last year when we moved in so I feel like we are doing something right at last! We have had many other butterflies of different kinds, dragonflies, bees, five lined skinks, American toads and southern leopard frogs. It is so nice to see all the wildlife. I bought a book to help us identify all the animals.
