My transition from cluttered to simple living.

The saga continues...

All six of our Monarch caterpillars have now spun their cocoons.  I could not get a good photo through the plastic container that is housing them right now, so have laid them flat to shoot this pic.

I wish you could see, close up, the beautiful girdle of gold on each of these cocoons.  HOW do they do that????

It is amazing.....  For the past two weeks I have been seeing through the eyes of my grandchildren.  Why have I waited so long to view the world in this manner?

  1. Amazing to see. I wonder if there are any of these on my milkweed plant?

  2. WOW! I just read one other blog where the latest monarch butterflies were released. This is such an awesome thing to do...
