A review of this week's garden activities.
Caterpillars are black, yellow and white. They live in swan plants. They turn into chrysalises and then turn into a butterfly. They can die easily of a disease. Their feet are sticky to hang upside down. Caterpillars are very slow. They hang upside down on a leaf and curl into a j and then it sheds its skin and then it turns into a chrysalis. Butterflies are orange, black and white. Butterflies are able to fly, not like a caterpillars.

The Monach butterfly lays eggs first, then the eggs hatch into caterpillars.
Next, it hangs from a leaf and then it turns into a chrysalis. After the monach butterfly emerges, a while later, it is ready to fly away. The caterpillars have pro legs the pro legs are not their real legs. They help them do things and walk . When the butterfly hatches it has a liquid which goes into its wings to help them fly and spread them.
Once upon a time there was a caterpillar. He was looking for food - a particular type of food. In fact, he was looking for swan plants. On his way, he came across some bright colourful flowers and he said to himself, “I’d rather munch on some leaves.”
