Well girls, that is the way a marriage is made to be. Truly God's plan! So nice to hear.

This morning I discovered three little striped caterpillars chewing away on the milkweeds I planted just for them. If the birds don't get them they should turn into Monarch butterflies before very long.

Keep an eye out for the cocoons. With any luck you will be able to watch them hatch and see them take their first flight. I love nature.

When I would take the GS on a field trip, I would make them turn over logs and see what was living underneath. A whole 'nuther world.

Are you making a butterfly garden? Do you have other plants to attract butterflies?

TL, you live right on the migration path of the Monarch when it leaves Mexico. We get a big influx of them in the Spring.

My milkweed also attracts Swallowtails, another beautiful butterfly. Love ' em ! They also like dill, and smell like dill when you pet them.

You pet butterflies?! They don't fly away too fast? My mommy told me that if you touch the wings of a butterfly, the magic dust comes off and then they can't fly, so never touch butterflies.
