238: Butterfly Egg

Photobucket
It's smaller than the head of a pin. The parsley and fennel look like someone shook yellow cupcake sprinkles all over because we have so many butterfly eggs. Now, you might be thinking I have a beautifully landscaped butterfly heaven of a yard. Nope. Mostly weeds. But what I do have is a pot of herbs. It's one pot with some herbs planted in it. Crazy. What's even crazier is that I rarely see butterflies in the yard. Mostly mosquitoes. I probably have those breeding somewhere around here, too.

Looks like I'm going to have to get more herbs sooner than I thought. I wonder how long until they hatch? I'm thankful for unexpected surprises.
