Exciting caterpillars of every color, stripe, shape and size!

Lots happening in the caterpillar lab the last couple weeks!     Found a bunch of these beautiful black & white caterpillars on a Cecropia tree right off of our balcony. We rescued all of them (as they would have almost surely become wren food otherwise) and have had fun watching them grow up! I’ve gotten […]

Catching up after the World Cup!

Ok, that’s it. I need to do more frequent blog posts. Initially my goal was to post one a week. The problem is by the time the week is over I’m overwhelmed by all the possible things I could write about and I put off writing anything!  So this week I’m gonna try for a […]

Our Garden Grows!!

The journey of working with an organic vegetable garden surrounded by jungle has been interesting, to say the least, but hey!:

Our new Lab, with a side of White Face West Side Story

Oh wow has it been a full couple weeks! Here’s a few of the things happening these days!                The butterfly lab is getting overhauled! Walls are getting knocked down, cement’s getting mixed on the floor, cinder blocks laid… while I stand in the middle of it all changing out grass for the morpho’s and […]

Return of the ants

.  The leaf cutter ants re-invaded. Turns out one foot of the table hadn’t been put into a wide enough oil container, allowing these persistent pillagers to cross the chasm, scale the table, and plunder again. So with almost perfectly dejavu detail we re-enacted the last night’s drama (with the one notable exception that this […]

Midnight in the garden of Mariposas

 8:45pm.  I’m worried about my black & yellow checkered checkered caterpillar. He’s stopped eating and keeps roaming restlessly around the box rejecting his host plant bottle or on any other  twig, leaf or perch I try to offer him (I think he’s looking for a place to pupate, but I really don’t know). I put […]

Hand raising mystery caterpillars

As I said in my intro blog, my passions are latin dancing, photography, Spanish and whatever happens to have currently sparked my excitement down here. Right now it’s raising caterpillars. One who makes the butterfly garden its home is the battus. We have caterpillars in the butterfly garden of course, that live there happily, eventually […]

Snakes, mystery caterpillars and other exciting finds

    Living here is addicting. This sense that under any given leaf, in any tree, any tide pool, there probably is some new creature you’ve never seen before, that is intoxicating to me. Josh, my fiance, has been living here the better part of the last 10 years and yet still, at least weekly […]

Montezuma Garden’s blog… back from a 2 year sabatical!

Hi! This is Pauline.  I am the fiance of one of the brother’s who owns the family business, Montezuma Gardens.  I   actually met Josh as a guest here at the bed and breakfast 6 years ago.  But after years of long distance dating between Montana and Costa Rica, I’m no longer here staying as a […]
