236: Invasion of the body snatchers! *Gasp!*

Photobucket
I really, truly gasped when I discovered this amazing, beautiful chrysalis on the fennel. I think my heart even skipped a beat. I am SOOOO excited. It looks like it's glowing. I ran in the house and yelled at the kids "You've got to come see this!" Everyone quick grabbed their shoes and ran back out with me. "Oooh!" "Wow!" "It's a chrysalis!" "It's gonna be a butterfly in two weeks, or so." It was so fun watching them talk to each other about it. I'm sure we'll be reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar a lot over the next couple weeks. I'm thankful about excitement over nature. And I'll probably have a whole yard full of fennel next summer.
