We had a caterpillary on our windowsill.  Now it is more of a chrysalis collection

This (above) is one branch, the other has even more chrysalises on it.
They are quite beautiful, close up.  In a week or so they will all hatch out and we'll let them go and lay eggs somewhere, hopefully not on Renee's swan-plant.  For the first time ever we have managed to keep a swan-plant alive long enough to grow seedpods, and Renee is keen to collect the seeds.  She'll probably have to put a net over it to protect it from voracious caterpillars.
