From Small things.....

.... big things grow

yesterday Emilia came home with a tub full of these.....they looked like a bed full of maggots exept of course they were not. These little babies are caterpillars of the most luxurious kind....little, tiny silkworms.

The kids have been hatching them and feeding them piles of mulberry leaves and watching them grow and spin their gorgeous yellow cocoons.

I find it quite magical to watch children taking their jobs so seriously. This tub has been travelling to different households each night, being oohhed and ahhed over and their food replenished....some even have names....:)

Must beat a playstation anytime....
