Every year our oak trees are infested with Oak leaf rollers. This year...none. However, the garden is overrun with all kinds of other types of caterpillars.

Our garden has been visited by the greatest number of butterflies I have ever seen. It seems that they have been visiting other Austin gardens. Pam at Digging photographed them in her inlaws garden, and Joseph at Round Rock garden. in his garden. Both identified them as the Red Admiral, Vanessa atalanta. What a lovely name. I identified the caterpillar but have not seen any in my garden. The coreopsis seems to be their favorite flower.
