Guest presented us with two wonderful little gifts. 2 Monarch caterpillars for us to hatch and release.
One cocooned over night and the other has already attached to the roof of the container. Regina thinks it will cocoon today. Once they have both changed, it will be about 12 days until the butterfly arrives.
Once they have opened, we will release them onto the Milkweed plants. If all goes well, they will return next year
Regina and Gary have assured me I can’t do anything to hurt them; so I will just sit back and let nature unfold before my eyes.
