I was trimming the seed pods off my Candlebush and some flowers were with them. I was surprised to find a caterpillar on one of the flowers because it had been a chilly night.
I took the flowers into the house and put them in a tub of water and named the occupant Willie. Willie continued to eat for 3 days and then went on a journey to find a spot for his Chrysallis. He settled on a stem of a tomato on my kitchen counter. So interesting to see it form. Before we moved I put him on the South side of some bushes in my garden.
