I’ve been thinking/ posting about growth & transformation lately. Synchronistically, I found this cute little guy hanging out in my herb garden this afternoon. Help yourself to some parsley my friend 💕. May it help you on your journey to becoming a butterfly 🦋. #thesweetbotanist #garden #gardengoddess #caterpillar #caterpillars #parsley #nature #insects #blackswallowtail  #butterfly #transform #growth #plantbased #plantbasedgirl #vegan #bekind #bugslife #bugslivesmatter #sharingiscaring #sharingiscaring #herbs #botanicallyinspired #botanical #veganfortheanimals #veganforlove #vegancompassion

Not sure if you can see, I just took this with my iPhone camera, but we have babies! There are at least five teeny tiny black swallowtail caterpillars in my dill!! Definitely going to be checking in on these guys. Also, sidenote: I grew this dill from seeds (along with a ton of other herbs and veggies) and I’m super proud of my little container garden.

It’s been 5 weeks since tiny specs showed up on my dill plant. 5 weeks and several different stages to go through. This one is by far my favourite but also bittersweet. The mesh house will no longer grace my house, my kids will no longer check what’s new with caterpillars. But we will remember this beautiful transformation forever, and take note that not everything is how it seems.

I did a bit of readjustment on this #pastelpainting I posted a couple of days ago... 😊 Okay, now it’s finished! “Black Swallowtail Visits the Garden” will be available as prints at my upcoming events! The original is also available: 9”x12” unframed. DM me if interested. #softpastels on #lacartepaper .

We haven’t had many honeybees in our garden this summer. 🙁 
But, other pollinators are making a regular appearance. 🦋 This butterfly is one of my faves, so far! #butterfly #pollinators #chicagowildlife #blackswallowtail

An obliging if somewhat hyperactive black swallowtail, ready for a closeup.

A freshly hatched, Black Swallowtail. It’s my new pet. 😀Next year I’ll plant more parsley because the caterpillars seemed to dig it. #blackswallowtail #butterfly #wow #nature 🐛🦋

I have an abundance of these stunning butterflies around my yard right now. ⁣
⁣
This pretty female Black Swallowtail stopped to sip the sweet nectar from my Zinnias. ⁣
⁣
If you’d like to have these around your yard try planting carrots, dill, parsley and fennel. Also having some nectar plants encourages them to stay for a while so you can enjoy the movable yard art 🦋 ⁣

Female black swallowtail released this morning. These are the first butterflies I attracted to my yard about ten years ago and sent me down the path of gardening specifically to attract wildlife and insects.

After 36 weeks in a chrysalis in my studio, our black swallowtail decided to emerge today, on Tenzin’s 6th birthday. Not sure what the odds of that are but he was pretty over the moon about it. You can check the swallowtail highlight on my profile to watch the long journey we’ve been on with this beautiful butterfly. #blackswallowtail #butterflymom #butterfly #newborn #birthdaybutterfly #momlife #homeschooling #pollinators

This beautiful Black Swallowtail chose to nectar upside down on my Salvia farinacea. Numerous photos disappointed, as they failed to capture the beauty and elegance of this pretty pollinator. So, I decided to lie on the ground and try a different angle—perfect!
🦋
Sometimes, a fresh perspective makes all the difference.

Happy Friday, friends. May all that the day holds for you be filled with the joyous epiphany of a new mindset and a novel viewpoint!

I’ve been raising caterpillars for eight or nine years now. My children probably don’t remember a time when they didn’t know the difference between a cocoon and a chrysalis, but we never tire of watching the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly or moth. Caterpillar season has officially started for us this week. I found some silver-spotted skipper caterpillars on our American wisteria and the black swallowtail eggs (butterfly pictured) hatched on our dill today!
