I'm growing something I never expected...
Get this: Apparently, after writing about how to plant a butterfly garden, I suddenly had one in my own backyard--completely without my own realizing it.
Yesterday, I asked my hubby to clip a little dill for a sauce I was making. What he found was way more than just some herbs. A little research proved that these bad boys are black swallowtails, and that they're fully grown as far as catepillars go. Somehow we managed to miss them in their early stages. Not super shocking considering how busy we've been lately, but still... I water the plants everyday. I can't imagine how I didn't see them.
I'm really interested to see what will come next. As long as they don't move into my peach tree, which is next to the dill hosting them, life will be good.
