I may need to set out some parsley in a pot.

Good for you I expect all creatures have a role to play.

Parsely caterpillars always made pretty blue and black butterflies.  My sons used to take an old fish tank  and put them in it and feed them all of my parsely.  When they had enough parsely they would climb up a stick placed in there and make a cocoon.  One has to watch though toward the end and take it out before the butterfly comes out and gets itself against the glass.  My sons loved doing that.  Somewhere I have a picture of baby David  with one sitting on his finger before it flew away.

Doing your part to help the ecosystem. I like it.

Re: The birds appear to be fans as well.

My fairy garden is located inside of my herb garden, so maybe the wildlife is making friends with the little people.

Good Afternoon

Sherri, I had no idea that caterpillars like herbs.  I've learned something new today.
