Butterfly

I know this is not a rose subject, but I thought you might all appreciate this anyway. This beautiful butterfly hatched outside the front door of my work a few weeks ago, I just happened to be lucky enough to witness it!

I was wondering if I would come to work one day and it would be gone but I got there just before it flew off!

Amazing thanks Betsy! It was a beautiful thing to see. Then I noticed 2 more dark brown chrysalis on some terracotta pots out the front!

I think it's a canny caterpiller that selects a protected wall or window sill underside for a cosy chrysalis hammock. Out in the garden wilds, perilously exposed on leaves, they'd be subject to wind and rain, and leaf-combing predators. Walls are better, I reckon. Hey, Rosy's butterfly even had its own alarm system ;-)

I also understand that the newly emerged butterfly absolutely nust have a steady vertical surface to climb up when it begins the wing drying process.

No idea how the caterpillar got up there! There's a long footpath from the garden and the sign is really high off the ground. Fascinating!
