Each Spring I pot up some Curly Leaf Parsley and then place
the pot close to the porch door. Every day I water and wait.
Another porch pot has sweet mint, just touching the leaves
releases a marvelous scent of summer. Sharing the mint pot
is some vibrant blue Lobelia.
And here is the guest I have been waiting and watching for.
The caterpillars have arrived and are feeding on this nutritious
meal. I think it's a pretty stunning creature at this stage and it will
morph into a beautiful black swallowtail butterfly.
