Caterpillar in the garden

This is the first time that we’ve had a garden.

That coupled with our kids and when we saw some caterpillars on the dill plant we thought “Great, we’ll just watch as the circle of life progresses.”

Oh, we watched the circle of life alright. The next day we discovered the dill plant practically eviscerated. It didn’t exactly go as we had hoped.

So, the little buggers were removed and placed discretely in a different part of the yard.

Having read the children’s book A Very Hungry Caterpillar you think we would have realized what the end game was going to look like. I guess you live and learn.
