Our butterflies

Ella's butterfly habitat has been sitting here since December. I finally ordered the butterflies. Well, I forgot to check the mailbox so I think I left them sitting in there for a day. I was pretty sure they were all dead until....ahhh, beautiful chrysalis....when the kids were out of town. I moved them over to the net. I thought I had done something wrong because I watched them diligently for a week - last week while just Ella was here. So, nothing has happened. Until we go out of town for one night...guess what - yep, butterflies. We pretty much missed the whole thing. Hopefully they will survive long enough for us to feed and release...more pictures to come.
