Three butterflies emerged in our garden this morning. I was lucky enough to catch one on video (posted below). We currently have about 35 butterflies (4 different species) flying through our garden today. The greenhouse is currently home to a over a dozen chrysalis’, 40+ caterpillars and literally hundreds of eggs. All signs that indicate we could have a record number of butterflies this year!

Anise Swallowtail Born Today

2 weeks ago, we discovered our new friend preparing to become a chrysalis. At 6:15 this evening, this amazing Anise Swallowtail emerged. We had about 30 gulf fritilary butterflies in the garden today. Humidity was high today with afternoon sun and temperatures in the 80’s. It’s going to be an amazing summer, I’m looking forward to sharing it with you.
