Well it’s been a whole week since the chrysalids formed, and yesterday was a very exciting day as 2 of our butterflies have hatched. Can you work out how many are still chrysalids? Remember there were 5 caterpillars at the beginning.
I’ve given them some flowers, and apples and I made a sugary nectar solution for the butterflies to feed on. The flowers are called buddleia and you will see purple buddleia growing everywhere at this time of year. Buddleia is also known as butterfly bush!
Now I’ve got to wait patiently for the other butterflies to hatch. I read that the chrysalids go dark before the butterflies hatch out. I wonder which one will hatch first.
