This has been a fascinating journey, watching over 2 Monarch caterpillars/chrysalis's right through our northern New Zealand Winter. I suppose my little travellers have been happily inside their chrysaslis', just doing their thing, without realising the wondering and worrying going on at the surface.
Our previous sweet emergence flew off happily to his butterfly life after 30 days in the chrysalis.
So what of our next emergence?
All we can do is hope it happens well. Goodness. If you think I'm like a worried mother when her first born goes out on her first date, you'd be right.
Whoever thought a Monarch chrysalis could bring this out in me?
Certainly not me. Lol.
