Yesterday we noticed the Monarch chrysalis that attached itself to our wicker patio table was starting to transform. Today it got a little darker and the wings are beginning to develop into the colors and shape of the beautiful Monarch. The orange background is the seat cushion, and I love that it compliments the Monarch's dominant color. We have three more caterpillars ready to go on to the chrysalis phase. We love hosting these beautiful, ethereal butterflies in our yard.
