The Beautiful creation of the Monarch Butterfly (Part 2)
Monarch caterpillar has journeyed up his , or her cage to prepare it's spot to attach itself with it's incredible silk spun button that he will then turn around to attach itself to that button, then finally will hang , head down, in a "J" shape. And will stay like this for about 14 hrs. Stay tuned for part 3 as it starts it's process of the pupa completion where it will then be a beautiful Jade color with gold trim.
The Chrysalis of Monarch Caterpillar to a Beautiful Jade color with Gold Trim
The caterpillar will appear to unzip it's skin and the pale green pupa will become exposed. Once the first crack in the caterpillar's skin appears, it takes about 5-7 minutes. The monarch pupa will continue to change by whirling and twirling in it's "pupa dance" When the process is complete, the pupa will be a beautiful Jade color with gold trim.

Foraging Redbuds, Dandelions & Viola's
Collecting a few edible flowers to add to my salad. The plant growing up the corner and all through the rocks just under the hummingbird feeder is called EUPHORBIA. It is an herb.The growth above ground is used to make medicine. It is used for breathing disorders including asthma, bronchitis and chest congestion, also used for mucus in the nose and throat spasms, hayfever & tumors.The clover like plant with the 3 heart shaped leaves that has a sour , taste to it is WOOD SORREL, Though I think the plant that I last showed you that I was so excited to try was a Columbine plant and the flowers and leaves are edible as well.
