Happy Easter everybody!
In a few weeks, when temperatures finally will rise and oak buds will unfold their first leaf , these two eggs will hatch and a new life cycle of the Purple Hairstreak will begin. I can't wait to follow it.
In the meantime I take care of myself with the AH Moestuintjes (vegetable seeds). Last year it was a big success for the Dutch white species. This year I will also try to tempt the Swallowtail again by sowing fennel; fennel is one of the larval foodplants of the Swallowtail. The fennel will be planted next to the buddlejas (butterfly bush) which are magnets for hungry butterflies.
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
