Who is this beautiful jerk I speak of???? Well it is a jerk-face caterpillar that just ate one of my plants. I've been watching this guy go to town for the last two days and it has been driving me crazy. I think I am extra pissed cause this is a plant that we had just saved. The previous owner had put a plant in a spot that it didn't like. The poor plant barely ever had any leaves and looked sickly. So a few months back the hubby and I decided to save this little plant and we dug it up and moved it to a different spot in the yard. Lately the plant had been full of leaves and even put up a few flowers. Then Lovelyn notices it…..a caterpillar. She thinks it is awesome cause in one of her Fancy Nancy books, Nancy and her friend go exploring and learn how caterpillars turn into butterflies. So wonderful….not….the book doesn't talk about how the caterpillar will eat the plant that you spent time and effort trying to save. Within two days this guy totally stripped my plant.
This is when he was halfway through with his meal………..
