Hello my hungry caterpillar

Dounemount Care Home in Macduff have been looking after some very precious cargo for the past few weeks, as they’ve watched their hungry little caterpillars transform into beautiful butterflies.

Kay Robertson, Home Manager, explained: “The team and residents here at Dounemount have been taking extra special care of the cocoons, in a special butterfly mesh container. Once the butterflies hatched out of their cocoons, the residents and team set them free in our garden. It was a lovely sight to see. Hopefully, we’ll see the butterflies making the most of the beautiful flowers in our garden.

“This is a regular thing we do at the home, with the whole month of June dedicated to feeding our hungry caterpillars and ensuring they turn into beautiful butterflies.”
