labor day

labor day,
the port in a storm
called schooling.
today i got some things ready for school
found a few things to make me happy.
 elder almost ready
(and some joe pye weed) 
at the new place.
which reminded me to look at the wild grapes.
they are looking good, too.
 a friend visited this morning.
it was very large, over three inches, 
dark green and fiercely white 
and i couldn't 
identify it.
i scared someone with it
before i returned it to the garden,
he he he, 
do you know this caterpillar?
families are spectacular.
this is someone who is hiding out
in viking mode.
have you seen this person?
