The boys are back in town

To my delight, as it is always this time of year, I have black swallowtail caterpillars on my fennel (which of course is planted for this purpose).

I have also got lots of eggs, which just tickles me pink.

I bought two fennel plants at the Farmers Market this weekend and I am hoping that I can root them so that my boys have enough food to get them through their life cycle.  This is very important to me.  I feel that it is part of my life’s worth to raise Black Swallowtail caterpillars into full fledged butterflies.  It is a tiny thing I can do, but if I can do it, I will.
