Mom went out to water the Sweet Potato vines growing in the mailbox planter and I conned her into letting me help her. I took a look into the vines and said, "Hey Mom, there's something in there!"
She thought it was a tuft of Sibe hair at first, but I said, "No! Get a closer look!"
Here's what we saw!
Mom said it was something called a "cat or pillow". It didn't really look like either one to me ... it just looked like a BUG! Then Mom said it was a bug called a caterpillar. Cool! (I made sure I told Amber my "cat or pillow" joke and she really liked it!) Here's another loook!
It kind of looks like Sibe hair, doesn't it? Mom said seeing the caterpillar explained why some of the Sweet Potato vines look like Swiss Cheese. Hey .... I wonder if the bugs are in cahoots with the bunnies!!?!? Then Mom put the watering can away and we started to head in the house. In the middle of the driveway, I saw another bug! It looked like the caterpillar ... only he didn't have a nice fluffy coat on!
