So, I went out about 6:00 pm and took these photos of the one on the trashcan. Not much noticeable difference, if any.
I go out about 9:15 pm, and this is what I find. Dang! I missed the magic.
The one on the axe still looks pretty much the same. But, I bet when I get up in the morning, it will be a chrysalis, too.
I was really wanting to see the chrysalis emerge. The skin splits open from the head down…not sure where it goes…and it comes out a chrysalis. Wish it would’ve done it while I was watching!

I’m a simple woman…at least that what my DH (Dear Husband) used to say about me…I was a wife, I am now a widow, mother, step-mother & step-grandmother, quilter, and have a full time job in criminal justice. I lost my DH on May 22nd, 2011. I live in a small town in Texas. I love piecing quilts, I love quilting quilts. I have a serious addiction to fabric. I’ve been quilting since 1998, and purchased my first longarm, a Gammill Premier, in 2004. I upgraded to an A-1 Elite, named Corky, in March, 2007. I am in the process of rebuilding my life after losing my spouse.

I’m excited! Can’t wait to see “what’s next”!
Oh… I’m so happy for you to have those swallowtails. I’ve grown three plants of rue for a couple of years now, when I saw all these goings-on in your garden. I’ve not seen but ONE swallowtail in my garden. And no caterpillars at all.
Very disappointed. : (
I’ve Milkweed growing here though, and usually have a nice crop of Monarchs hatch. But I really wanted those swallowtails! I’ll have to keep watching your post for further developments. : )
This is really fun to watch Randi! Thanks for sharing!
Very cool pictures! I’d be tempted to spend the entire day watching them for fear I’d miss something!
BTW, your axe is seriously dull.
