I planted certain plants to invited specific butterflies to our garden about 4 years ago. No luck getting them to show up in the spring months. However, they were there when we showed up in August. It was like an egg hunt having students look outside on nearly leafless plants for caterpillars. Oh, the joy when they found more than 5 and the scientist in them were talking about camouflage and scat. We brought one inside and observed. It took 2 days for it to create a chrysalis. We learned they do not spin it, but their outer skin sheds and it is within. Looking forward to the changes to come.
What I am thinking about...........
- Hurricane Irma has made landfall in Florida. Hoping friends, family and strangers alike stay safe from harm
-Migraines are no joke and need heed my evacuation notice forever
- There are 20 sweet little kiddos in Room 115 ready to learn so many new things- let's not test them to pieces...........
- be kind to others
