A dilly of a surprise!

Good morning everyone,

Yes, it's very bad pun.

Yesterday I harvested some dill.  A metre square section of ground is covered in it, thanks to a plant that sheds its seeds all 'round.

This morning there were three "parsleyworms" - the caterpillar of a swallowtail butterfly.  '

They were just waking up in the sun, starting to move, probably wondering why the "juice" in the dill stems didn't taste fresh.  I've returned them all to the garden ... nestled them in the fine foliage. 

Now it's up to them to find the fresh stems.

And wonder what kind of funny dream they all had.

Best regards,

Why's Woman
