I am thrilled beyond words to be finding gorgeous chrysalises dotted here and there now, around the garden.
When the larvae are in this state, no longer active, quiet and seemingly lifeless, it takes but a few short hours…
to turn into this. These are nearly impossible to find even though they are about an inch in length. They blend so well with the vegetation they can vanish in front of your very eyes. Who needs a Christmas tree when you can have a butterfly bush! My only regret is that I didn't just sit there to watch it unfold with my eyes, maybe I'll be luckier in the future.
In about 10 days time butterflies should emerge. THIS is EXCITING!!!
