The Rewards of Yard Work

A wonderful Luna Moth Caterpillar climbs the old oak in our garden.

These are Tall Husband's give you an idea of scale.

Mowing a lawn can bring rewards. Consider this beautiful Luna Moth Caterpillar. Tall Husband found it climbing up an oak tree in our garden as I was finishing the trimming and edging today.

Now, I shall dream about seeing this caterpillar, transformed into a large moth. She will be flying about one night in Spring with her magical wings spread majestically in the darkness.


  1. I remember seeing those when I was a girl in Chicago, but don't think I've seen any here...although I do see plenty of moths!

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Just saw two of those this morning as I was out watering. I didn't know what they were, other than HUGE. Thanks for educating me!

  3. What a nice thought. The transformation of caterpillar into moth or butterfly is truly magical!

  4. Hope one day there will be a beautiful butterfly in your yard......if you are finished with youe yard, I am just up the road.


  5. There are blessings in our gardens, when we take the time to see them.

    Thanks for sharing yours.

  6. I love your blog! I just spend some time going through your last few posts...Great pictures and inspiration!
