Close friends M&M have been running this experiment in their home for months now and are lovely enough to share the joy of their success with us. They had planted a butterfly host plant and after months of failure, finally had grand success in being able to observe little caterpillars growing and transforming into beautiful butterflies. They invited us home many times to see this lovely miracle of the caterpillars munching away on the leaves of the host plant (nothing like I had ever imagined!). This time they even gifted a little pupa to us! We are going to observe this closely and hopefully we won't miss the moment when it turns into a butterfly.
