From Egg to Butterfly.

We had the swan plant but no caterpillars so we put the plant outside in the vegetable garden for the night. Next morning we were very excited to find that six white eggs had been laid on the leaves. From these eggs hatched 4 tiny caterpillars and we are enjoying watching them get fatter every day as they chomp through the leaves. Next week we will photograph the cocoons and then finally the butterfly!
