|Ebony and Ivory|
This has been one of THOSE weeks.
Months ago I posted about my passion vine growing on an arbor
to protect some of my orchids
It was totally infested with caterpillars and I was being a good guy
and did not use any insecticide but let the squirmy things eat
the plant down to a skeleton in hopes that I would
have an equal amount of butterflies.
Finally this week a pair of Gulf Fritillary (had to look that one up) butterflies arrived.
And you know what I think...I think those two will make and lay eggs again.
And I will have thousands of caterpillars chewing their way through my vine,
to attract TWO butterflies.
There is something wrong with this picture!
