Butterflies, caterpillars and other pollinators, like this white cabbage moth feeding on the lavender plants, have been spotted in the garden this week. Look in the corner planter the next time you walk by the corner of Denton and 1st Streets!

Swallowtail caterpillar/larva on the dill in the corner of the edible garden was probably laid by a butterfly feeding on one of the many nectar plants in our garden.
