this morning I was closing the curtains in the dining room and caught sight of a swallowtail on one of the hostas…

so pretty, but I didn’t move fast enough to get a picture…

part way through the morning my daughter texted me to see if I could FaceTime with her… very unusual for her to want to do that when I am at work, but I said okay…

she wanted to show me the Monarch that was just emerging from its chrysalis… she knows how I love them… a neighbour of hers had brought them a twig with some chrysalides on it so the family could watch the process…

around noon she sent me a picture of them letting it go in the backyard…

it reminded me of the August that I was on vacation and was able to document the caterpillars growing, turning into the chrysalides, and then emerging as butterflies… 

I made a wonderful PowerPoint of the experience and keep thinking I should make it into a picture book…

we didn’t see many butterflies last week at the Shirley Richardson Butterfly Garden, but did get a picture of this little one…
