Thanks, Wendy. I only saw a few butterflies out there today. I wonder if I can find their chrysalis somewhere.

It was amazing, Ardy. I have seen one monarch all summer and a lot of yellow or white butterflies, but all of these Painted Ladies... Wow! When I taught second grade we raised them in the classroom. We were given several vials of larva, mashed vegetation for them and a butterfly "cage". It was fun to see the larva grow and become a chrysalis and then hatch into butterflies. They laid eggs and if I had the right plants, they would hatch and grow. We released the butterflies near the woods and fields by the school.
