|My watercolor line and wash sketches|
There were two caterpillars who each made a chrysalis in Leila's mason jar. Today the last one emerged. After hanging upside down in the jar for a while, it began to open and close its wings. Then we took it outside and our granddaughter, Leila, let it climb out onto her hand. She carried it on the back of her hand and kept it safe for more than four hours until it was ready to fly away.
Oh, and incidentally, Leila also does gourmet food styling out of flowers and leaves. This is her lemongrass "soup".
