    On 24 July I spotted a Monarch laying an egg on a swan plant, so I brought it in. It hatched on 2 August & seems to be doing OK. Also brought in a chrysalis I found on an old swan plant, looks a bit jaded, but I’ll give it a go, & will euthananise it if it doesn’t seem healthy

    Further to the above; the butterfly, raised from the egg, a healthy-looking female eclosed 2 days ago & after 2 days sheltering under the eaves on my lavender hedge spread its wings in brief sunshine this morning & flew off. Very satisfying!

    Unfortunately the late chrysalis never grew & I euthanised it
