UD V Excited!

Woke this morning to monarch butterfly caterpillars all over my milkweed.

Don’t wanna crop this, cuz want you to see them all.


UPDATE: There’s got to be a morning after…. There’s frass everywhere.

    Wow, monarch butterflies!! The long time residents here in the Northwest have said hordes of those guys would show up every year. Now, we’re lucky to get any. You must not be using any synthetic chemicals in your yard….

    charlie: Right – no chemicals. And it’s a garden put in by a professional landscaper with vague instructions from me – “I want it buzzy and birdy” – so it’s been one happy surprise after another. Tending it has been just the thing during this pandemic.
