Yesterday afternoon, someone walked by my house, which of course got the dogs all excited with the thoughts that company might be coming. the next response to the thought of company is for them to go tart at the front window barking their fluffy heads off. This in turn causes my legs to move my body into the vicinity of the front window. This happens almost every day....but yesterday was different for when I arrived at aforementioned window I noticed a strange looking leaf on one of my Geraniums. On closer inspection I found this little caterpillar clinging to it like a life raft.
These geraniums were brought in for the Winter about 3 weeks ago, so I guess he has been amusing himself in my Geraniums for that length of time happy as a bug in a ...well....Geranium.
Now he has a new home in a jar with the leaf he was on and a cling wrap sky with a few holes punched in it. I would have been happier putting him outside where bugs belong, but I feel too guilty about puting him out in the killing cold. So looks like he found a home.
I now am on a quest of knowledge to find out what, if anything he may become someday...oh and for a good name.
