  1. Cathy I love all your visitors. The green cricket is beautiful, the caterpillar is divine (even if it eats your basil) and the butterflies are wonderful. That is fantastic, it means that your garden is ecological, I love it. Enjoy your fabulous garden. Take care. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita πŸ˜˜πŸžπŸ¦‹πŸ›πŸπŸ‘

  2. Lovely critters… I’ve started allowing munching on many plants to promote the food web, sometimes moving them if the damage is too great or they run out of food, esp. butterfly larva. Invasive species don’t count! πŸ˜‰

  3. What a knotty caterpillar! πŸ˜‰
    Your pictures of the little creatures are wonderful, Cathy. I think so many of us are learning to live in more harmony with the little things that inhabit our gardens.

    • πŸ˜ƒ The caterpillar was rehomed onto some strawberry leaves, but the birds are so busy in all my borders that he probably didn’t last long….. nature is cruel!

  4. It’s amazing how much caterpillars can eat and how quickly some of them can move too. Something has eaten the flowers off almost every one of my delphinium seedlings when my back was turned. I still can hardly believe it.

    • Oh, how annoying! That happened to me with oriental poppy seedlings last year, with the whole plants devoured. Only one survived. I have sown some more this year…. fingers crossed!
