I couldn't resist taking a photo of Kim last night - she seemed to be so content. I also went out to try and capture a photo showing the gold line around the chrysalis but it didn't show up very well. While I was at it I snapped one of our roses. This bush is usually covered for a large part of the year but we have had a period with no flowers so it is good to see it blooming once again.
I think there are seven chrysalises - all except one are hanging from the leaves of the orchids under the swan plant. I haven't managed to see any of the caterpillars in the process of changing to a chrysalis so the odds of seeing a butterfly emerge are not good.
A couple of houses along from us is a row of seven swan plants but there are no caterpillars - it appears the wasps are eating them as soon as they emerge - I had thought of transferring some caterpillars there if we ran out of food but have changed my mind!!!!
