Thank you, Clifford.

I went looking for Monarch caterpillars in my milkweed patch, and found two, but I was even more thrilled to find three chrysalis'!! Then to get a caterpillar and chrysalis in one shot (no help from me), it was pretty cool. Monarchs have been few and far between this year, so to see this was encouraging.
