Primrose Moths

Primrose caterpillars are born from eggs laid on Primrose flowers. They feast upon their golden cradles and travel down the stalks to burrow below to the roots of the flower. Primrose Moths spend most of their lives dormant. They lay waiting throughout the autumn, winter, spring, and early summer.

But for one brief time, they are beautiful – blush pink and cream valentines. Without mouths, their only hunger is for the nectar of love.

Rosy-fingered Dawn meets rosy wings. The lovers take refuge in the night blooming primrose petals. As the sun shines, the petals wither and reveal their embrace. Together, they are like a fluttering heart.
