    Hi there,

    I’m new to this butterfly gardening fun and I’m very keen to learn as much as I can. I just did the online butterfly garden course. I would be interested in more information about stage 3 of the monarch life cycle. What are the specific processes of developing a pupa and then how does it turn into a butterfly? Is there something I can read about that prcess?

    Thanks, Melissa Rose
