I have been meaning to tell you about Wilbur for a while now.
When we found him his little chrysalis had fallen, so we scooped him up and made him a little bed from pipecleaners.


Wilbur slept in a glass jar on our windowsill for several weeks, and we were just about to give up hope when one morning we came downstairs to find that our little Wilbur had finally hatched!

After we spent some time admiring and studying Wilbur it was time for him to be free and join his friends in the garden.

Goodbye Wilbur!

    Sweet! How nice of him to finally show up again :) Is he a cabbage butterfly?
