Forward - From the Heartland of Carolina

This is a continuing story of the journey Forward shared by 2 people, Lynne and Tom. Both love to LIVE life to it's fullest, which currently means spending lots of time outdoors, working on various projects from gardens to patios, flowers to vegetables, sunrises and sunsets, birds and woodland critters, and spending time with family. Don't forget to check the monthly archives, and please feel free to leave us a comment so we know you stopped by.

A butterfly's start

Late summer, and the fennel is being stripped of it's leaves and branches by hungry swallowtail caterpillars. The eggs are laid on the plant, or other similar host plants like carrots, and for a couple weeks the caterpillars feed and grow. Then they spin their cocoons , and transform from the caterpillar to the Wonderful butterflies pictured in the previous entry.
