INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF MONARCH BUTTERFLIES
There are lots of monarch butterflies visiting my garden right now. I grow butterfly weed and eupatorium just for this time of year, when they will be passing through on their journey to Mexico. Most butterflies live a couple of weeks or a couple of months, but the fourth generation of the spring/summer season monarch butterflies live 9 months and their story is incredible! The monarchs are everywhere in town right now. I'm hoping that no one will delay their journey by putting them in a jar or in a cage. They are on a mission of survival. Most of them will be moving on south with the winds of the next cold front.
ENJOY THEIR BEAUTY!!
