Description: Cape town has been cold and rainy lately. I was therefore surprised yesterday to see one of the pupa on my garden wall had hatched and produced a beautiful Garden acraea butterfly. Even more surprising however was that another identical one had emerged that same morning from a pupa that was attached to my wife's echeveria rose that was indoors and had been for some weeks now. The wood burning stove has been working overtime and the indoor and outdoor temperatures could not have been more different.
