I love the silk worm cocoons. I am always thinking of how I can use them in something, but haven't yet. Until now.
I have good memories as a child of raising silkworms. I'm not sure why we did, but I love the fat soft worms. They are similar in colour to the cocoons with a darker head. At one point they escaped from the box and climbed up into the drapes. The rest is vague. It's been 30+ years. We used to go and cut mulberry leaves for them to eat. The whole process was fascinating. Maybe it was a school project or just something we did for fun. Anyway, life was full of adventure growing up.
Happy Mother's Day to my mother and two sisters. Hope you have a great day. I love you all and think you've done a fantastic job of being mother's to your children.
