Gloucester Sculptor and Gardening Friend Morgan Faulds Pike writes ~
Just read your post at GMG and thought I’d send this along since it happened today.
I went into the barn to put the broom back after sweeping the porch and I did the daily check of Swally! OMG!
Had to rush the photos because I didn’t know how much time I had. I transferred him via his stick to the monarda. Then he flew away into the juniper hedge, perhaps to be shaded while firming up…
He was a tiny caterpillar last fall. We fed him parsley and you advised us to let him winter in the barn.
Thanks and Cheers,
Morgan Faulds Pike is well-known throughout Gloucester. She is the world famous sculptor who created Gloucester’s beloved Fishermen’s Wives Memorial.
