Random 5 Friday

Watch out! Randomness coming your way in 3…2…1…BOOM.
(cough, cough) Now that the smoke cleared, I can see to type.

1. Two days ago, there were a bazillion¬†(ok, seven) early-stage Black Swallowtail caterpillars on one small fennel plant. I went out to inventory them today–the plant is gone, and they were nowhere to be found! I didn’t even get pictures of them!

2. I did find four later-stage ones on other plants in the Fennel Jungle. We planted extra fennel last year; we always had lots of caterpillars up until then, and the plants would be bare in no time. Now we have fennel and few caterpillars.

This is the lightest I’ve seen, usually they’re brighter green.

3. Thursday brought thunderstorms. I got trapped in a craft store–my hubby’s worst nightmare.

Seeing all those leaves on the ground made me sad. That’s rain on the window, though, not tears.

4. The wren from Good Fences #24 came back so you could get a rear view.

5. We got a laugh this week. Z started Pre-K, and when she grows up, she wants to do nothing. Thanks to our daughter for sharing the photo.

Hope you have a weekend of smiles, too.
