The Butterflies Are Here!

The Monarch butterflies have emerged from their chrysalis and they are using their proboscis to drink the sugar water we left for them. The girls like to reach into the butterfly house and feel the butterfly wings flutter on their hand.
Every year we go through the same thing.....Olive gets so sad when it's time to release them into Grammy's garden. "It's almost time for their wings to fly," I tell her. "I know," she replies.
The life cycle of a Monarch butterfly is an amazing thing to see.

Such a beautiful and educational thing to witness from start to finish. I wish we could get something like that down here!
