We tracked down our culprit! @bluemoments9 and I thought it was strange that our kale was being eaten. It’s over 30 feet away from our milkweed! That gold ring is vivid and a dead giveaway that’s it’s a monarch chrysalis. You can kinda see the butterfly forming. Kinda cool: the jade green casing (chrysalis) is under the caterpillar's skin and appears after its last shed. The catepillars mouth paths reconstruct so that the butterfly will emerge with a straw-like mouth to sip nectar. It will never eat solid food again. The butterfly has three pair of legs rather than eight. And, if forms reproductive organs. All in less than two weeks! #chrysalis#monarch#butterfly#monarchchrysalis
I am just in awe of these little critters! We currently are watching 3 of them! One is already in its chrysalis stage, this little guy was hanging out on the zipper of the habitat so we had to move him and now he is also in the chrysalis phase and the third is still munching away! 🐛🦋 #catterpilar#butterfly#metamorphosis#chrysalis#learning#nature

Chrysalis trainer Steve has signed up for the Manchester 10km. He isn’t a runner and it would seem he’s not been doing much running either! 🏃🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️ Repost from @ Chrysalis (@steve_at_chrysalis using @RepostRegramApp - I’ve been abit quiet on the running front for a while now so I’m well overdue a post. So firstly the reason why I’ve been quiet is...........I haven’t been doing any running! Yes this is not ideal preparation for a 10k run ha, but as I’m not really going for a record time and I’m confident my fitness levels are still decent enough from my ice hockey days to make it round the course without collapsing, I just haven’t been that motivated to do much more running than I already have. I will do some more running nearer the time but that’s besides the point. Running for me is a chore, I don’t particularly enjoy it and feel that especially the longer distances takes too much time out of my day. I would much prefer to be in the gym lifting weights or playing a sport. I also have to consider that as I’m on the heavier end of the spectrum there is a larger potential for injuries to my joints due to the repetitive impacts. So how does this relate to all of you? Well it means that whatever your goals are for fitness and health, do something you enjoy. Do something that has minimal injury risk for you. Do something that fits your lifestyle and time constraints. All of these things make it sustainable thus making you more likely to achieve your goals! PS I’m still a bit short on my target for my fundraising so please donate what you can as it’s for a great cause. And I will get my arse out for some more runs!

26.04.2019 Be patient – this cycle is changing and re-arranging our life. Knowing when to shift to the next gear spells the difference between success and failure. Break through the blocks that prevent you from achieving our highest potential. This is the time to take a step back, take our time and make the right decision, so we don't shoot ourself in the foot and do something we will regret later. Let things happen the way they're supposed to happen and don't push the envelope! We will figure out the right steps to take, or find the help we need because we have the determination and energy to see everything through. . . . #tarot#tarotguidance#tarotasyourteacher#onlinetarot#instagramtarotreading#tarotfortheday#chrysalis#pause#goodtimesahead#hardworkpays#fromitisinthecards9
Let’s take a look at Madonna’s birth chart, shall we? Madonna is Virgo rising, Leo sun, and Virgo moon. What this translates to, right off the bat, is that she is a superstar (Leo) who is picky, smart, practical, sovereign, and in a constant state of processing. She may shine like a Leo, but she has TONS of Virgo energy in her luminaries (sun, moon, rising) make her much more practical and (especially with a Virgo moon), probably very hard on herself and others. People go on about Virgos being critical, and they are, but their criticism really only extends to themselves. What they give to other people is not “criticism,” even though most of us interpret it as such. It is how they love. One of the primary drives of Virgo is SERVICE. They want to help other people so much, and they see so many things we don’t, they can’t hold back from telling us all what to do. All the time. And we all need to admit that life would be a whole lot easier if we just friggin listened to them. BUT, our job is to learn how to do things ourselves, and Virgo’s job is to learn to hold back all that incredible wisdom they are bursting to share and wait till they are ASKED for help before they give it. Going back to Madonna, the natural ruler of her chart is Mercury, which is very strong in her map because it sits “in it’s dignity” in it’s own sign of... VIRGO. It is also within 5 degrees of the ascendant, with the Virgo moon on the other side within 3 degrees... all of these things point to the fact that our Madonna is no fool. Her heart, mind, and body are all in incredible, equal conversation. She doesn’t lead with one or the other, they are all out there and yet, she’s not messy about it. She says what she thinks, and what she feels, and is sincere with both. She is probably prone to overthinking, over feeling, and not letting anyone too close unless they really bring something to the table of her world. Anyone who would make the mistake of thinking that she is
We have 11 (very fat!) monarch caterpillars that have been munching on the milkweed for about 2 weeks now. Today we were so excited to see the first of them make its way to its chrysalis stage! It’s absolutely fascinating! A few days ago I noticed this one particular caterpillar was completely still and had stopped eating; I thought he was dying. He was just conserving energy preparing for a big day! 🐛🌱🦋 #monarchs#chrysalis#metamorphosis#milkweed#milkweedformonarchs
Today the WC District Clean Team swept the sidewalks and curbs of Wilshire Blvd, 3rd St, 6th St, 7th St, 8th St, Normandie Ave, Vermont Ave, and Western Ave. They picked up trash, emptied trash cans, cleared gutters, removed weeds, painted out graffiti from street poles, flower pots, new racks, and much more. The Clean Team does this every week to help make sure that the Business District can stay successful. Every month we collect around 1,000 bags (22,260 lbs) of trash. The Wilshire Center Business Improvement District is creating pathways to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to find and retain employment. For over 24 years the Wilshire Center BID has been creating jobs that directly contribute back to our community and give people an opportunity to enhance their lives through meaningful and impactful employment. #changinglives#jobs#employment#cleanteam#wilshirecenter#chrysalis#losangeles#creatingjobs#changinglivesthroughjobs
