Our Very Own Butterfly

Yes. It happened. I finally found one chrysalis from a Monarch butterfly. I put it in my butterfly habitat and it hatched a beautiful butterfly today. It was amazing! That is our success story. I had to take about 50 caterpillars off my now stripped Passion Vine and to a new vine at the nursery nearby. I don't have enough caterpillar food....how tragic. I'm doing ok though. I will miss the little buggars, but at least they won't starve to death. The eat ALOT. I mean ALOT. Here's a photo of the success story and a photo of my assistant. She's a cute little buggar too. Thank goodness I get to keep her and so far we have enough food around here to keep her fed. David shops at Sam's you know.

Congrats on your butterfly! I know how much you wanted that little butterly (actually how badly you wanted both of them) They are BOTH beautiful! Although I have to admit I am partial to the last little picture. I know, I know-I haven't met the other one yet, but I'm bettin' that cute little lady bug will keep my heart!

How long do they live? I'd heard only a few days? Is that true? When I'd heard that I thought how sad. They truly are beautiful and you hatched them? Oh I am very curious about all of this. Now I want one!...lol Your daughter is beautiful! Thanks for sharing this. =O)
