We told you yesterday that Dad had seen a butterfly near the parsley. Well, today he managed to get a picture. Looks like she may be planning to lay eggs on the mint plant which is a bit confused, because what she really should do it lay them on the parsley, which is right adjacent to the mint. We don't think these kind of caterpillars eat mint (they are black swallowtails.). They do very well on parsley - a couple of years ago they completely stripped our parsley plant, unfortunately before they were fully grown. But the year before we had several that formed the chrysalises and then hatched back into butterflies.
