Kate started working out using the Beachbody Workout.  She feels great, loves the products and the workouts and that’s why she became a Beachbody Coach.  I can attest to her being totally motivated by the workout and the challenges and most importantly the results.  I’m 100% convinced that it works big time.  If you would like to talk to her about it here’s the link to find out more.

Newly Emerged Male Black Swallowtail Butterfly

Thanks to Kate and the team at Wolf Hill for giving me a second Black Swallowtail caterpillar of the season. And, as I was getting ready to discard the parsley plant from the first caterpillar they had found at the garden center earlier in May, I discovered yet a third caterpillar.

Chrysalis #2 eclosed yesterday in the early morning hours. The butterfly in the photo above is newly emerged, so much so that you can see its abdomen is still swollen with fluids as it is expelling a drop. After first drying his wings on the zinnias, he flew off in search of nectar and a mate. I just can’t thank you enough Kate, and everyone at Wolf Hill who is taking an interest in the caterpillars!
