High Meadow has been overrun! In our 17 years here, I've never seen soooo many caterpillars! They are everywhere. You can't take a step without encountering them which is really, really gross. They're on fence rails, gate latches, door mats, you name it. They seem especially drawn to water, so I guess they're at a very thirsty stage of development. Fortunately, the organic pesticide I've used has kept them from my garden. Time will tell whether they'll be butterflies or moths, but if they're butterflies we're in for a spectacular summer sight.
