I sat down with the undertaker and planned my funeral today!

It's done and dusted, I can leave at a moments notice!

A couple of years ago the whole fam damly gathered on a hot summer's day at my daughter's for a pool party and plan my death. It was one of the best funnest days I have ever had. So many laughs. It was finally determined that I would die on a Wednesday night, always keep a supply of large green trash bags and they could toss me into the dumpster at the end on the driveway. Trash pickup is early Thursday morning. The kids had a great time also in the pool all day.

But like you, every thing is now in order including my will signed and sealed by a notary public.

It's no laughing matter but plan to do the same, especially for the disposition of the house and family antiques and paintings. The less the lawyers are involved the better.

May I ask why milkweed, TinLizzie?

Is it a component of a butterfly/bee garden?

Don't you dare! You can only leave if you ask permission first...

Now where did Shrek put the urns? We are all planned, too...but not going anywhere for a while.

Monarch butterflies reproduce only on milkweed.

They're essential for Monarch survival, they'll only lay eggs on milkweed. Most farms have wiped out milkweed, and the Monarch population is at an all time low. Any little bit helps!

Hope you're not thinking of leaving us anytime soon, AB!

DH and I both need to update ours too. We'll probably go the burn and sprinkle route.

Apparently so: http://www.thebutterflysite.com/wyom...terflies.shtml

I also plant parsley for the Tiger Swallowtails and me. I carefully try to move the caterpillars to "their" parsley, and explain it to them. They then move back to "my" parsley. Apparently Swallowtails don't speak English.

I have not seen as many Monarchs in many years as I have seen this year. A great sight to behold!
