Black Swallowtail cats LOVE our dill

We had a banner crop of self-seeded dill that we have allowed to grow for all of the beneficial insects attracted to the flowers. Yesterday I noticed that we are also hosting numerous BlackSwallowtail caterpillars. Just wanted to share this photo.

Oh, they are beautiful! I haven't seen any activity on my fennel yet, but it's a small patch. I have fennel and parsley, but no cats yet. Hope you continue to get lots of visitors.

As Miss Sherry would say, Congrats, Congrats!

A wonderful photo of healthy Black Swallowtail cats. I love these little guys!

Thank you so much for sharing.
