Monarch Butterfly Magic


Swarms of monarchs used to pass through town on their southerly migration, but in recent years there have been hardly any. This chrysalis appeared in our garden a few weeks ago and when it got knocked off the plant, Lesley tied it back and put the pot in the greenhouse. (Note the gold dots.)

We kept watching it and a few days ago, the transformation had taken place. (The second shot is a bit blurry.) Within a day or two, it had taken off into the wide outside world.

I am so impressed Leslie thought to "tie it back together", and rehome plant. would not have thought of that, as once it fell, thought that would be that.

obviously not.
