A few interesting things at the Mounts Botanical Plant Sale on Saturday!

First, I cannot remember which vendor it was, but they were showing off this cute cactus feller!!! I thought it was genius to carve the face into the prickly pear!!!  It will live and grow like that.....hehehe.

Then we discovered this hairy caterpillar in a bunch of bamboo! It was moving, or I would have thought it was a cocoon of sorts, or a gall. I wonder what he will be when he grows up.....I am going to guess a moth!!!!   Not sure, but will do more research one of these days!

The Mounts Botanical Garden is located in West Palm Beach, Florida. They also had their annual hibiscus blooms show, which is always fun to see.

I have seen pictures of that caterpillar. I don't remember what it is but it sure is interesting. A little fuzzy wuzzy.

It's a puss moth caterpillar, and it's poisonous!
