Thank you nightfly, my Gran

Thank you nightfly, my Gran is scared of caterpillars so was rather upset when she nearly got this one up her nose! It helps to tell her what the adult looks like.

The adult might be a bit less

The adult might be a bit less distressing for her? A nasty enough surprise to find a beast alive in your nice rose!
