Just got home from vacation and did a walk around yard. Probably everyone else would think I'm nuts...DH looked at me strange. The milkweed in the yard is stripped and the monarch cats are all over the place. Yes!
Last year nothing....this year loaded. Did a happy dance.

How great! I just recently went to see the film "Flight of the Butterflies" at the science museum. What amazing little creatures those Monarchs are.

Vera, Must be good mojo....went to NC Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill Sat. p.m. in the rain ( light & misty). Joe sat in car while I roamed around. Saw butterflies there and thought....gee, I wish I had more at home.

I don't usually get Monarchs here but I have cats on my parsley and my dill has been eaten to nubs...FINALLY! Didn't see much of any thing all spring and early summer, now they are all around.

Congrats Jan! Glad you helped them out!

I love fat monarch caterpillars....We had over 200 monarch cats last year and this year lucky we have had about 50 hatch...and some of those cats came from a butterfly house friend. Have a large number of Giants and Spicebush currently eating rue and *****ly ash....they will overwinter in my garage! Cool

We may get 25 tagged yet...but dubious if any will make it to Mexico....Wink.
