Caterpillar

Here is our newest friend: A Woolly Bear Caterpillar, who is staying with us while cocooning. There is some great info on Enchanted Learning and the Michigan Entomological Society.
Once I spoke the language of the flowers,
Once I understood each word the caterpillar said,
Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,
And shared a conversation with the housefly in my bed.
Once I heard and answered all the questions of the crickets,
And joined the crying of each falling dying flake of snow,
Once I spoke the language of the flowers...
How did it go?
How did it go?
~ Shel Silverstein

Those crafts are so cute!
We took in one of those wooly bears too... but alas, he did not survive. I really don't know what went wrong. He just shriveled up in his cacoon... sad.
