My 7 year old has been fascinated with butterflies since the butterfly growing project at school. I had decided it might be a fun summer project as well. I was all set to order the eggs and did lots of research on host plants for caterpillars. Over 3 months ago, we started our Giggling Garden Gang Sunflowers so I was excited to see that we could use their leaves to feed the caterpillars.
Look what I found when I was checking on my sunflowers
Someone had been eating my Sunflower leaves
I took a little closer look…
The boys have been super excited to watch the transformation. Slimy is now in the chrysalis stage and we are patiently waiting to see his beautiful arrival!
