It’s been a fun week bringing to the blog a taste of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
Turtles swim silently in a small pond near the entrance.
Chrysalises hang on in screened eclosion boxes where they’re safe from predators.
An insectary houses caterpillars that will develop into silk moths. I’d never seen so many of the little crawlers in one place before.
My experience with wildflowers has been that beasts usually accompany the beauty. Most of the varmints have been bees, of course, who like the flowers as much as I do.
Looks like they want to learn more, too!
