Last year in August, I shared about our pet monarch caterpillar, Stripe-ilicious. This year, Stripe-ilicious’ great-granddaughter came to our house, and we adopted her. Her name is Summer.

This is Summer when she was a baby:

Then, at the end of last week, Summer changed into a chrysalis. Ordinary Spouse captured this cool video:

Anyway, Summer is now “hanging out” in the kitchen. If she follows Stripe-ilicious schedule, we may see her emerge at the end of this week.
