Remember that swallowtail butterfly chrysalis that we had in the library since last August or September? I was sure that it was never going to hatch, even though I had read that sometimes these butterflies take a long time to come out. Well, luckily I had not thrown it away, and luckily, I was here working on June 7 when I noticed there was a butterfly in the jar. It was quite amazing to see it after all this time. I took it outside and put it on a flower so it can fly away when its wings are dry.
