We've had quite a collection of butterflies making their way into the wide world from our garden this week! On Saturday, James watched four emerge from their chrysalises at once. Later this week, we all got to see two drying their wings and getting ready to fly. It's strange to see those beautiful wings all wadded up, but beautiful to watch them gradually flatten.
Zack took photos (the second butterfly with dry wings is his!). Sammy was enthralled.

The parsley, on the other hand, is devastated. That's ok - it gave its leaves well, nourishing these beauties!

(And don't forget to comment to win the set of handmade cards!)
