A few weeks ago I noticed three chrysalis….two attached to our pool screen and one attached to the stucco wall of our house.
You can only imagine my excitement.
Then, I noticed that the one on the stucco wall was empty.
I had on my hands an
early bird eager butterfly.
The next day I found this little miracle.
You can see some of the ooze leaking out. Wait, is that placenta?
I’m sure someone wants to eat that….
what? It’s all the rage now.
Placenta soup. Placenta Sammies. Placenta tea. Placenta patties.
LoLo and I were so excited to see this little
guy/girl butterfly. Why should I make it gender specific? I’ll let him/her choose himself/herself one day later.
I am the most politically correct person you know when it comes to butterflies.
I must have went out and checked on he/she 6 times over a 3 hour period.
Good thing I was off work this day…I can imagine calling in:
“Uh, well, I can’t come to work today because a butterfly was BORN in the vicinity of me”….
I kept checking the remaining chrysalis asking if it was READY yet?
Then a day later, it was empty.
I suppose some butterflies like to be born in private.
What does he/she/it think he/she/it is?
Ok, maybe they are.
Wishing you all a miraculous Wednesday.
What’s for lunch? I hope it doesn’t start with a P….
