Phenomenon of the natural world that from a dull earthy chrysalis could emerge something as beautiful and ephemeral as a butterfly?

 Prehistoric garden, bracken and ginkgo older than recorded history. Also both in my garden.

Prehistory (Latin, præ = before; Greek, ιστορία = history) is a term used to describe the period before recorded history.

I'm not sure who is sneaking up on who! We have had our first bout of cold weather and sneaky cat is on the prowl. I have been feeding the birds and they are driving the cats crazy.
