Recreating a native habitat has been a dream of mine since I was about 18. It only took me 20 years, but I finally have two acres of land in the country with which to work (and play). My goal is to document the improvements I make to the property: restoring habitat & attracting birds and butterflies in addition to other wildlife.
Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

The Little Guy Seems Confused
I found the smaller of the three caterpillars on a blade of grass...that seemed very odd to me that it would leave the host plant--perhaps it fell and was climbing back up. I moved the little guy to a young, tender shoot and will check on him again.
The other two are plugging away and plumping up. :) ...and looking good.
