  1. I just love this combination of quotation and image! Not only that – if I were to caption this one, I’d choose “Me -5th Grade”. I can’t do anything about the world at large, but I’ve destroyed every photo I have from that year – as we say on the interwebz – OMG, they were awful!

  2. Yes, no caterpillars, no butterflies. The buddleias are flowering in the garden again and I am enjoying the fluttering butterflies they attract.
    Great photo of the caterpillar. I like the way it seems to be cuddling up to the flower bud.

    • I’m beseiged with various caterpillars this year, and I’m not complaining 🙂
      Buddleias are wonderful aren’t they! I’ve got blooms on one I managed to strike from cuttings in 2012 – deep purple. This caterpillar is actually on a cornflower bud, to give you an idea of how small it is.
