Well, as I mentioned in my last post, the butterflies have emerged from their chrysalis. We have been raising caterpillars that came with a butterfly raising kit which was a Christmas gift for my daughter. You can read about the caterpillars growth here and their moving day here once they formed their chrysalis.
The caterpillars formed their chrysalis last Tuesday and we put them inside of their butterfly enclosure. We hung the enclosure on a tree in the back garden. I did have to bring it inside for a couple of nights when the temperatures dipped below 55 degrees.
Well, Saturday morning dawned and it was a beautiful day. I was happy because I got to sleep in a little bit. As soon as I woke up, I went to take the butterfly enclosure back outside when I noticed 3 butterflies fluttering about inside of the cage.
To say that I was EXCITED is an understatement! I ran to get my kids to show them. **The reason you don’t see me in any of the photos is because I still had my pajamas on 😉
