Kittenpillars

In my compilation of tiny perfect things, I forgot this guy, a Southern Flannel Moth caterpillar (Megalopyge Opercularis). He and a few dozen of his fairly destructive but absolutely precious brothers and sisters were on my rose bushes last week -- they've all disappeared now, and the roses are recovering nicely.

See, marquisdd, I told you they looked like kittens! Just look at their little taaaaaiiiiiiiiils! (However, their spines are said to be poisonous, so do not stroke them no matter how adorable they are.)

In other news, I'm waving the white flag of surrender at those Mexican Sour Gherkin cucumbers, whose strangling vines produced two (2) tasty but minuscule fruits all summer. Gonna pull them down and plant ... I don't know. Beets, maybe. I love beets.
