News

The first butterfly has "hatched" this morning - hopefully pictures to follow but my usual photographer is not at home, so we shall see. Exciting, though, because today is exactly 11 days since the first caterpillar started turning into its chrysalis!

It wasn't flying yet, just kind of moving and hopping - wings need to dry out. For today it is in my "funhouse", along with its brother/sister chrysalis in the terrarium- probably to be released to fly away this afternoon.

  7. We would love to see pictures! I love butterflies, and no even to eat but just enjoy!

    How exciting about the hummingbirds! We've got a bunch in the back yard--we can hear them talking to each other--but rarely do they come to the feeders.
