Release the Woollies!


Not quite as dramatic, but noteworthy none the less—on Tuesday, the Woolly Bear Caterpillars were “released” from their Tupperware containers in the crisper section of the fridge.  Thanks to an early spring, leaves of green grass are in abundance for our hungry soon-to-be Isabella Tiger Moths.    The tiny little black and brown brush sticks were carefully placed under cover of leaves  and left with water nearby. 
Happy cocooning little friends!  


  1. Anybody who keeps caterpillers in her fridge is Ok in my book. Good for you.

  2. Hi Gene,

    I've always loved Woolly Bears! Winter here in the Midwest was especially hard on them as we had such unseasonably warm weather.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
