it’s swallowtail season! have you been able to locate any swallowtail caterpillars? they will sometimes graze on yarrow but really like dill, fennel and parsley!

did you know that the swallowtail butterfly caterpillar goes through 5 stages and changes drastically in appearance during those changes? for more information and great photos of all the different caterpillar stages, go to the butterfly gardening and conservation website.
