My magical chrysalis STOPPED evolving ...
We have no idea what caused the transformation to hault.
It really got to me ... I was so happy to see this little miracle happening and it just STOPPED
You can see where the top part cracked .. Garden PA said he thought it was the heat.
But I can't reconcile myself to that .. I just don't understand it .. a little heart broken in fact.
We do have loads of bees and beneficial insects hovering around and I saw a gorgeous Monarch fluttering from the flowers, of course too fast for a photo.
Sun King aralia is happy .. so happy it is GROWING like a weed .. I have to trim it up a bit so the epimedium "Purple Pixie" can breath .. but my shady side is smiling.
I don't usually have pictures of the front garden .. just keep forgetting .. or working too hard to remember? .. that sounds better, right? wink wink
I will miss that incredible chatter they made when the parents came to feed them .. it was sweet to hear so much life going on in our back garden.
