If you have read my blog for any length of time you will know that I love to get caterpillars and watch them until they turn into butterflies. I name all the caterpillars George. That makes it easy to remember. The Wonderful Neighbor girl brought me a wee George last night. Can you see him on the leaf?
This is the first one of this year. I will post pictures to show you how quickly they grow. This is a fun and easy thing you can do with your children. This George was on a milkweed plant. He will turn into a Monarch Butterfly. We also get fennel Georges off of our fennel plants. I believe they turn into a Black Swallowtail Butterfly. You just put some leaves in a jar with the caterpillar. Poke some holes in the lid and watch and wait.
