The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Visitor

There’s been an inhabitant in our kitchen for a while. 

This crysallis arrived a few months ago. I suspect a stowaway from one of our allotment harvests. It was created on the blunds in the kitchen. 

Yesterday at dinner something moved in the corner of my eye. And sure enough there was an emergence. 





A cabbage white I suspect but pretty and delicate all the same. 

Its former home looks paper thin.



Fine and delicate. But a masterpiece.

    That’s neat! My kids would love seeing something like that, but I’m afraid my husband wouldn’t let it stay. Lucky you though!

      It wasn’t in the way. It was quite cool. I just wish we’d seen it starting.

    I’ve left a bunch of weeds to overwinter just to hope to find one of these. No luck, but you get one in your kitchen? Lucky you!! But is that a cabbage moth? The kind that end up laying eggs on the back of the cabbage transplant leaves and chewing holes in their delicate leaves? Unlucky you. 🙂

    I get a kick out of saving the odd chrysalis or cocoon I find around the garden now and then. The coolest one was the tomato hornworm that emerged an enormous sphinx moth.
