What fun it was to watch our tiny caterpillars grow and grow and make their debuts as butterflies. The girls were enthralled with the whole process – it is quite magical, isn’t it?
The timing was just right – we were able to release three of the butterflies at our old house, on our last day there. One chrysalis traveled with us to the new house and the butterfly was released there the next day.
Sometimes the butterflies zoom right out of their temporary home and sometimes they need a little coaxing. This group of Painted Ladies definitely needed some coaxing! Natalie wasn’t feeling quite brave enough to hold one, but Delaney decided to go for it. She loved holding the butterflies and misses them quite a bit.
Hope you are having a magical summer so far!
