I photographed this beautiful echinacea out on my Mum’s property. She planted this garden just a few days before my brother passed away…she now calls it, “Kenny’s Garden”   xo

#crystallynnphotography_#caterpillar
Out in my garden, I was hunched over admiring how well my tomato plants were doing when out of the corner of my eye, saw something move.  I glanced over, and dangling just two inches from my face was this HUGE caterpillar. I think I jumped back about two feet and may have let out a scream.  After the initial shock of finding a critter so close to my face, I ran inside to grab my camera and photograph it. I watched it for quite awhile admiring the beautiful markings and letting it feast in my garden. The next morning I came out to the garden to find my friend, and could not believe the amount of damage this chunky  fella did in less than 24 hours. As much as I love my garden friends, I could no longer let it destroy all of our crop. I didn’t want to touch or hurt it so my sweet husband cut off  the large branch that it was feasting on (which included a few tomatoes) and set him carefully in the park behind our home.  Hopefully our friend finished feasting on the branch and moved on to a new plant in the park. {this caterpillar is a tobacco hornworm, and will become a beautiful Carolina sphinx moth}

as I watered my garden yesterday afternoon, I noticed this beautiful dragonfly resting in my kale plants. Aside from growing our own food, my favorite thing about gardening is creating a space where we can welcome such beautiful creatures.

I grew up across the road from this lake and have a million memories here, mostly with my brothers. Fishing on hot summer days, feeding the birds and sometimes riding our horses out here. So grateful to have these memories forever in my heart.
