Birthday present

I got a nice birthday present this morning, I found my first butterfly egg in MY butterfly garden on my property, a BST, on my Bronze Fennel!

I was perusing this forum at around 7 and breifly saw something dark flutter past the window. I figured it was one of the many small birds, so I didn't check till I was heading out to work. Found the egg and put down my stuff, went to my potting bench and grabbed some scissors and snipped it. Took it upstairs and got it situated.

So I was a half hour late to work...big deal!

Congrats!! Butterfly gardens DO work. Now, keep a look out for more eggs. She has your number.


And, Happy Birthday!

RE: Birthday present

Yes! Usually if you find one there are many more coming.

RE: Birthday present

Happy Birthday! And what a great present!

If you can't be 30 minutes late on your birthday, when can you?

Be sure to show us a picture of your present when it turns into a beautiful Butterfly.


RE: Birthday present

Happy Birthday spaceman! What a great present! I recall the day when I found my very first BST egg on my fennel. Very exciting stuff. Plant those host plants, and they will come. Best of luck!!

RE: Birthday present

Happy birthday!
Ditto to what's been said about there will be more - there WILL be!

RE: Birthday present

Happy Birthday Spaceman! Great present. Bronze fennel is a wonderful plant for Black Swallowtails. I bet you find more.
Did you tell them why you were late?
