Alexander has his own butterfly farm. He started off with caterpillars in a jar with a lid and watched them eat their food, then spin their cocoons and then saw them after grandma had put them into the special butterfly net. He was waiting very patiently for them to emerge from their cocoons and in only four days the butterflies started to emerge. He was very excited and was watching them with his mummy and brother Oscar. They have put some special sugar syrup and an orange into the butterfly net so that the butterflies can have something to eat.
