Found this unusual caterpillar on a hosta leaf in the pergola. Apparently, it is most likely a Flannel Moth Caterpillar (an entomologist agrees) and has traveled much further north of it's normal range. Although it looks soft enough to pet, touching it can cause very severe reactions in humans. A good reminder to ourselves, fellow gardeners and curious kiddos to be respectful of the insect world. Please share.

A New Discovery!

Have always loved the Cobweb Sempervivum's ability to spin it's own web. 

Just discovered the blooms are pretty amazing, too!
