The Caterpillar Cocoon

With all of the hulabaloo over the past few days - school ending, Alexander's birthday, etc., we forgot about the caterpillar eating the parsley plant. Until today.

Sabrina went outside to check on him and this is what she found:

Look directly into the center of the plant, to the left of the two yellow leaves and the long skinny stem- and you will see a long green pod - that's the caterpillar. I can't believe we missed it!

Just to refresh your memory, here is the picture from 2 days ago:

Sabrina is going to put a post-it note by the back door reminding us to check him each day - how long does it take a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly?
