We went to Home Depot and got another milkweed. There were already two caterpillars on the plant along with at least a dozen eggs. We now have seven caterpillars on the milkweed, which we are keeping in the house so the lizards won't eat them. We learned that dill weed and parsley attract swallowtails so I want to plant some of those.
Did I tell you that our fish died recently? Like two weeks ago. He was a Chinese algae eater. I named him Spotless since when we first put him in our tank he made it spotless in a matter of hours. He was three years old. When we talk about getting another pet my answer is always "NO". I do think it's funny though, that the best I can do for a pet is a caterpillar.
And check out this photo of a weird caterpillar we saw at Lettuce Lake Park the other day. Very odd. I got some video of him crawling and this is a screen capture from that video.
I know my life is so stimulating that you wish you were me. Don't be hatin'; not everyone can have such an exciting life.
