First, the butterflies aren't going to make it. One of the boys put the chrisalyds in the butterfly hatchery by himself very early one morning. He took them out of the cup, off the lid, and TAPED the paper they were attached to to the butterfly mesh house. He must have accidently squashed them in the process, because some are flat and some are shrinking. So, we'll try again with another cup of caterpillars.
The other is in the process of painting on a smaller board now. He's painted over his work several times but is enjoying it. I would so love for one or both of them to enjoy art!

The garden is not ready though. We have about 10-14 days to get it ready to receive the new butterflies. They can go find a place, of course. But I want to have the garden ready. I'll post pictures as we progress.
