Caterpillar, caterpillar, crawl, crawl, crawl;
Don’t fall off the garden wall.
Caterpillar, caterpillar, eat, eat, eat;
Grow so fat on your furry feet.
Caterpillar, caterpillar, rest, rest, rest;
Soon you’ll change to be the best.
Caterpillar, caterpillar, try, try, try;
One day you’ll be the best butterfly.
C Richard Miler
We are in the middle of year two of a caterpillar cycle, and it is disgusting! They crawl on everything and eat every leaf in sight...........by the millions, upon millions!
The only good thing about all the rain we are having is it washes away all their gross squished remains from the sidewalks and roads.
These photos are from the staff entrance at work, apparently I missed the worst of it by being on vacation last week.
The forestry guys say that the cycle will last 2-3 more years, with this year and next being the worst then they will die off again.
My friend Kim who lives out in the country where they are a lot worse, writes about her take on it here.
Yesterday was hubby's birthday, and the bike he got for Christmas/birthday finally arrived!
Won't we be the pair riding around town!
Downside of all the rain is we can't ride them down to the coffee shop this morning!
