  1. Love the caterpillars. Remind me of my childhood – I was always trying to ‘hatch’ caterpillars by keeping them on leaves in jam jars with a bit of muslin over the top. Are the pale birds flycatchers? Storyline – ‘Did you ‘ear about ‘er next door?’ Whispers in ear – ‘She …………!!!!’ ‘No! Well I go to me tea!!’ My Grandfather was frequently going to his tea or even to the foot of our stairs when amazed.


    • Peacock spiders newly hatched look like a mass of jet black wool decanted over the nettles (https://www.flickr.com/photos/susan_g/14432080086/). There were brown hairy caterpillars whose hairs stuck in you if you touched them – I’ve always been wary of contact.

      Over-the-garden-wall-ish? I rather saw them as lovers but couldn’t work out what they were saying.

      It was always “the foot of our stairs” that was gone to although memory stirs – I’ll prbably come back to that.
