Caterpillars: We now have Chrysalides

Not sure i can title my posts caterpillars no more, as as you can tell from the title we now have 4 chrysalides. The 4th caterpillar is around 3/4days behind the others. The other 3 have been chrysalides for 7 days now, so we could get butterflies anytime. Although none are dark yet and the information leaflet you get with the kit says they will darken before butterflies appear. So now on dark chrysalide watch!

When the last caterpillar was at the top in it’s J shape. I sat watching for an hour, it was twitching and moving so i presumed it would be a chrysalide soon. After an hour i had to stop watching and go make tea for us all. Typically i came back in the living room 30 minutes later to see it was a chrysalide! So i missed it all again!

I am hoping to catch atleast one butterfly emerge, but i bet it will happen when i have nipped out the house.

So although not much is happening from the outside alot is happening inside! We are now on Day 15!
