A suburban Monarch butterfly chrysalis.
A Mother’s Day gift of milkweed for my first backyard butterfly garden has become the gift that keeps on giving. The Monarch caterpillars fed until they matured enough to make their chrysalis and I’ve been fortunate enough to find a few in my yard. This is one that made its way to a branch of one of my bamboo palms.
