Monarchy Update

Just when I was ready to give up and resign myself to thinking that my Monarch Butterfly was not going to emerge from the chrysalis, lo and behold, there he was. In a previous post back on September 6 I mentioned that the process takes about 10 days. It’s been 21. I checked on him when I got up this morning. The chrysalis had been progressively becoming transparent and this morning it looked like more of the same. When Roger went over to his office, he came back to tell me, “He’s out!”

So it is with great joy and wonder that I introduce to you our brand new arrival. He’s been hanging around all day, resting and letting his wings fill with fluid, expand and harden so he can make the long trip to Mexico for the winter. We wish him God speed and sweet sipping from the flowers along the way.
