Sunday

Hope for the Future

Hope is not a prediction of the future; it's a declaration of what's possible. 
- Yogi Bhajan

A Monarch Caterpillar munches on the milkweed.  HOPEFULLY he will grow up to become a beautiful Monarch Butterfly!

I hope it does make it. I'm looking forward to the day when Monarchs are common place again.

We have a lot of milkweed plants at our house. We see the occasional egg, but can't ever find any caterpillars. This is a wild little grove of milkweeds. They just started growing one year and we haven't discouraged them. They are blooming now.

In 2009, we brought 3 caterpillars into the house and watched them go through their different stages. We were lucky enough to see one go through the whole metamorphosis. It took a little bit over an hour and was fascinating.

With work and other responsibilities, I didn't get to see any of them emerge from the chrysalis, but I did see one while it's wings were still wet.

We let all of them go, after they turned into butterflies! Was fun to watch them fly away.

Plus, we fostered 2 or 3 of them for a friend and then gave them to her, once they were in the chrysalis. She didn't want to have to worry about feeding them. She shared a video of one of those butterflies emerging from its chrysalis.
