Hello Tuesday Friends!!
I'm a bit late today as I was waiting on butterflies to make their appearance!
As you can see they have finally shown up. Here's the photo after the wings were fully developed...
I dropped the phone while filming 😓
We had another open up yesterday and I knew the other two would open today so I waited to try and catch it happening. In the 4 years I've raised Monarchs, this is the first year I've gotten to watch the opening. Unfortunately the other one was deformed and didn't make it 😢😢😢
Like I said before this year has been a learning year for sure.
Here is yesterdays butterfly....
I have a video of him feeding but I can't get it to load for some reason. My computer doesn't like me today .
It appears to be a very active day with the caterpillars too.
I have three cages that have cats with the J-hook formation and they are turning into Chrysalis ...
If they all turn today that will be 17 new Chrysalis and I have 7 that have already turned.
So now that the butterfly business has been documented I can get this post done and get back outside to work. I have flowers that need planting :)
Here's what's blooming today...
...at least a few of them anyhow ♥
I did take the time to sketch out a butterfly on paper. I will paint it and fussy cut it out to use in a collage.
So that's what's happening in my world this week . So don't forget to check out the other great post at
