Yesterday we released 3 more butterflies!
We’ve been raising 15 caterpillars and so far have let 5 butterflies go. We have a milk weed plant in front of our house but last week the gardeners butchered it!! Luckily, I saved those 15 the day before (not knowing! Just on a whim bought a butterfly keeper.). Prior to the butchering, I had never noticed any chrysalises. Thought maybe the geckos, lizards, and birds ate the caterpillars before they could cocoon.. So, I’ve been enjoying watching these little guys get big! T on the other hand hates the smell of our house when we get home – hot milk weed leaves. Oh, well. It makes me happy to see these guys fly away :D
So very obsessed with this little project :) How I love mother earth. What a wonderful world we have when we can appreciate the beauty of nature.
