Looks Can Be Deceiving

Be Careful!  Looks can be deceiving.  What may be easy on the eyes may just be a serpent in disguise.

So I have another garden story for you.  I was out watering my garden the other day and I turned around and saw these beautiful yellow flowers on my blueberry bush.  It took me a moment to realize that there should not be yellow flowers on my blueberry bush so I took a second look.  Yes, maybe you saw it right away – these are not flowers, they are caterpillars and yes, they should not be on my blueberry bush.  Isn’t it amazing how you can be so excited about something beautiful one moment until you see it for what it really is and somehow that beauty disappears?  The caterpillars were very beautiful and I tried to thank them for their beauty but in the end, they had to go.  I took one last look at their flower like appearance and then I cut off the branches and threw them over the hill.
