Yesterday my daughter and I found this caterpillar in our garden. She caught it and we sat wondering where she was going, what she'd become. After a hurried day at school for Field Day, it was nice to contemplate about this crawling creature and her short lived adventures before becoming a butterfly.
We talked and talked and I think she got more out of just being together in the garden than all the organization of the Field Day events. When I think of summer, I think of moments in the sun where you get to breathe, relax, and wonder what a caterpillar's been up to all day!
I am so glad this season is here!
