Texas Tuesday: Caterpillar

If you plant it, they will come. This Very Hungry Caterpillar, which is destined to become a monarch butterfly, is munching on the milkweed plants in the back yard of the Rectory. Welcome to Texas, little one.

When I saw this, the first thing that came to mind was, not surprisingly, this passage from the popular children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle:

On Saturday [the Very Hungry Caterpillar] ate through one piece of chocolate cake, one ice-cream cone, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami, one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake, and one slice of watermelon.

One thought on “Texas Tuesday: Caterpillar

  1. It’s heartening to know that the Rectory gardeners are contributing to the sustaining of the monarch “population”!
