Monarch Chrysalis

Planned to move the plant rack from the deck to a space in the courtyard for potted succulents. I removed all of the plants.

When I flipped the rack over to brush off all leaves and debris I found a Monarch Chrysalis.

Apparently, one of the eight Monarch caterpillars made it through to the chrysalis stage.

Didn’t finish cleaning the plant rack. Didn’t want to disturb the chrysalis. Also, left the plant rack empty to prevent giving the chrysalis a shower while watering plants.

Nature controls gardening. Gardening teaches patience.
