We straightened the bricks out yesterday and filled the sand in and finished around the cicle. it was a beautiful sunny day. It`s a little sandy right now, so I`ll post a picture of the finshed result after it rains and cleans things up a bit. Supposed to rain tomorrow sometime. It`s looking good. I like it!
I found these bright plump caterpillars the other day on the pretty weed that I dug up and planted in the corner of the back garden.
After searching on the web, I found out that they are the second stage of becoming a monarch butterfly!
And at the same time I found out that they feed on only one type of plant and it`s a common milkweed So my weed must be that. The leaves look more like Joe Pye Weed but the flowers are a little different. I`ll have to investigate it more again next year.
For some reason I always thought the orange and black fuzzy ones were monarchs in the making. The ones that roll up into a ball when you pick them up. But by looking them up, they are called Banded Woolybear caterpillar. Interesting info and these prefer to hang out under the willow tree.
Below is why this plant caught my eye. I had to borrow this picture because my blooms are now over......
