We've had a dribble of tomatoes and baby carrots……..
But joy of joys these little critters are munching away and I am watching them with delight. Their choice of nourishment is a self sown plant so we are happy that they like it! I am intrigued by the 'balls' - not sure if they are a product of all the munching or maybe even more little baby critters…….
Some of their cousins have already arrived for their short life - but they are so hard to photograph……this one would not oblige with an open set of wings for me……..
I read here that they feed for 2 weeks and don't emerge from their pupa for 3 weeks. And also that the butterfly will live from a month to 6 weeks and that they are very toxic to predators……….
But we did have a short burst of rain a few days ago which freshened things for a little while……we now just need bucket loads for a few days…….
Now this blog was supposed to be all things "Morris" but it seems family and home fill it up. But I did read of the release of Effie Gray in the US next month. I can't find a release date for Australia but did read it was released last year in the UK. I do wonder if Mr Morris might have a brief appearance in the story……
On a final note - from time to time I've received emails from people who are unable to leave comments on the blog. I've tried to rectify that so I hope the new system allows it…….thanks for dropping by and take time to smell the roses today! x
