The beauty of the natural world is such an inspiration. We were sitting out on our deck last week and saw a Swallowtail arrive and check out every herb plant until she found our parsley. She then proceeded to lay tiny little dots of eggs around the plant... we've watched them closely and they grew into little then big caterpillars - buying more parsley and fennel to feed them. Then a couple disappeared... after looking really closely all around I found two on my sage plant - one had already turned into a crysalis and the other was starting. I took these photos with my cell phone - will try to post some better ones later... Awesome!
