October 10 2010 - A Butterfly Hatches

At this year's Celebration of Children in Nature awards ceremony (for which I produced one of the award videos), I was lucky enough to sit at the place at the table that won me the centerpiece. This year, as last, the centerpieces were assembled by the amazing Peggy Winkler. They consisted of gorgeous baskets, filled with potted plants. In the center of each basket, hanging from the handle, was a glass bowl and suspended above each bowl was a chrysalis. There was also a packet of seeds and a nice butterfly book in each basket - quite elaborate and beautiful. Well, we followed Peggy's instructions and, about a week later, here's what happened.
