When we first fly over we stay with our son and his wife and he takes us to see some local places. This was at the Environmental Nature Centre Newport Beach California. We loved this place and spent a few hours there.

Another one hiding among the bookmarked puzzles :-)
Looks like a wonderful place - one that I would enjoy :-) x

It was a little square box Marina, hanging from the ceiling of the Butterfly House. We guessed that they took the chrysalises off the buses and put them there so people could see them hatch out. It's an educational centre and a lot of children go there too. Thanks and hugs. ♥

Lovely collage Janet. I just love the chrysalises of the butterflies hanging in a garden's bench.

Maybe it's too dry, and not enough moisture in the leaves for the caterpillars. ♥♥

Janet, sadly, there are no butterflies anywhere in my garden no matter what I grow. I see one or two in a year. That's it. I don't know why they are not here. Hugs ☺♥♥

Thanks Barb, that must be a lovely sight with the Californian poppies. I found a packet of seed (had grown some years ago) and have planted them, but not sure they'll come up as they may be too old.
Do you get lots of butterflies to your Mock Orange or is it too hot??
Hugs my friend. ♥☺♥

Thanks so much Daasha, hugs to you my friend. ♥♥♥

Janet, I have a mock orange bush too. It blooms several times a year. And my California poppies are just now finishing their show. My whole backyard is covered with them. Thanks for your lovely collage, my friend. Hugs ☺♥♥

Janet, this is a very interesting and beautiful collage. Thanks and hugs my friend. ♥♥♥

Thanks Val, hugs to you my friend. Yes as children we loved keeping caterpillars and seeing what they turned into. ♥♥♥

Interesting collage thank you Janet, when I was a child we used to see many Chrysalis hatch, it was fascinating thank you for the memories Hugs my friend ♥♥♥

Jill we understood that they took them off the plants and hung them here so people could watch them hatch out. Thanks and hugs. ♥

Thanks Gail I did that too with my Year 5's many years ago, watvched caterpillars change and eventually hatch out as butterflies.. My class found an insect that we had no idea what it was (no internet then to look!) so Julian (we were engaged then) took it to the Brisbane Museum and they identified it as a Katydid and they asked to keep it for their collection. Hugs. ♥

Thanks redina, hugs to you. ♥

What a fabulous place to spend a few hours Janet. I have only ever seen Monarch Butterflies chrysalis hanging on swan plants before, not all on a row on wood. Fascinating, thanks Janet ❤️

Thanks for the added info, Gail. There’s always something new to learn each day 😊

Great collage, Janet.

When I taught 5th grade we raised monarch butterflies from tiny caterpillars to adults. Chrissie, the monarch chrysalis is about an inch long. It's amazing to watch the caterpillar attatch itself to an object, form a "j", and shrug out of its skin to form the chrysalis. I've also watched the adult butterfly emerge from the chrysalis. Sometimes my students were lucky enough to observe the process. If I noticed in time, we would stop whatever else we were doing to watch. Magical!

Very nice. Thanks for sharing the memories. :)

Nev, I think it's named for the perfume, not the flower colour. I like the idea of Mock White! Thanks and hugs my friend. ♥♥♥

albertwinestein

A fine collage, Janet. I always find it ironic that a bush with "white" flowers can be called Mock Orange. (Probably because it sounds better than Mock White!) :-))) ♥♥♥

jan42ful

Thanks Suzy, they are all Monarch Butterflies, almost ready to hatch. They were all around this box, hanging from the roof of the Butterfly House. It was an interesting place to visit. Hugs. ♥

I thought the chrysalises were a fancy decoration until I read your description, Janet! The Center sound quite an exciting place to explore. With thanks and hugs.

jan42ful

Thanks Foxy, it was a fabulous place to visit. The Mock Orange was fabulous. Hugs my friend. ♥

foxymoron

There is such a lot to see it sounds like it would be hard to leave the Nature Centre.
Those chrysalises are way bigger than I’d imagined them to be. The mock orange scent would be pretty heady - breathe it in cautiously 😊
Thanks, Jan 💟
