The weather was finally settled enough for me to get out in the garden today. It’s been really cold so I left the dried leaves on the flower beds a little longer than normal – they shelter lots of bugs, including caterpillars. I was tidying up the herb bed and I spotted this little critter nestled in the parsley.
Caterpillars seem to enjoy fatting up on our strawberry leaves and herbs before they build their chrysalis. I’ll check back in a few days and see how he’s getting on, he’s pretty fat now so it can’t be long now.
