The Fauna Family

So we’ve got our nine caterpillars busily stuffing themselves on my dill plant in anticipation of their imminent cocooning over in my side yard. We have the morning dove family that has returned – for the THIRD YEAR IN A ROW – to build a nest in the hanging basket we now provide for them so they don’t poop all over our geraniums.

When we moved our big jasmine from its pot to the ground over the weekend, the girls fought over the earthworms who turned up, each girl demanding that the worms come and aerate her own “special” part of the garden soil.

And when we were outside watering yesterday, Cora was busily tending to the herbs when she noticed a few very large, very loud bees right next to her.

“Oh, look,” she said calmly. “We’ve got some lovely bees doing a great job cross-pollinating the purple sage.”

I don’t think we have to worry about animal squeamishness over here.
