A Poem & A Picture (Day 3)

Caterpillars

By Brod Bagert

They came like dewdrops overnight
Eating every plant in sight,
Those nasty worms with legs that crawl
So creepy up the garden wall,
Green prickly fuzz to hurt and sting
Each unsuspecting living thing.
How I hate them! Oh, you know
I’d love to squish them with my toe.
But then I see past their disguise,
Someday they’ll all be butterflies.

Okay I know this caterpillar will turn into a  moth. A Polyphemus moth to be exact but shhh she thinks she’s a butterfly.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

Sara Rosso posted a beautiful example for this weeks photo challenge.

This weeks theme is Pattern. I have been doing a little sewing (a little is all I know how to do) but that is not the pattern Sara had in mind. Shucks! I had just relearned how to load the bobbin.

Oh well, look at this cool Polyphemus I found last week.

And this is what he/she looked like in November. Not the same pattern but lovely still. Polyphemus caterpillar in Fall

Alas I ate a portion so you could see the pattern here. Yum Hmm, the sacrifices I make. 😉 Mothers Day Strawberry
