I have not seen as many Monarchs in many years as I have seen this year. A great sight to behold!
Isn't it wonderful??! I've seen a dozen or so just in the past few days.

You would be surprised by how many families do not plan for the inevitable. The children do not want to talk about it. But with two kids in the family that have survived cancer, mine realize just how important planning is.

When my SIL was told by the doctors for him to go home, get his affairs in order and come back in two days, he got the message real quick. They gave him four weeks at best to live. They attacked his Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma with every thing they had in their armor. He survived it, but it left him in very rough shape. Disabled. Then my daughter came down with brain cancer, and she too is a survivor so far. So you can bet they have kept their affairs in order. But it doesn't have to be a doom and gloom matter either.

Remember "Death is a part of life. The last part."

I know! I try to keep up on them, and there just haven't been any here for years. Now they fly around the yard and road!

I've had a couple teeny caterpillars on my milkweeds, and the winds took them, but I'll keep trying.

I don't know much about monarchs at all, I need to read up on them. I'm assuming these beautiful guys are stopping here on their way down south to warmer climates. I sure do enjoy seeing them.

What are you doing?

Drat, PF, I could send you millkweed seeds.

Did you dig out your patch? Milkweed are considered a horrid weed in farm fields. That's one of the reasons the butterflies aren't around much anymore, the farmers use Roundup and kill anything other than what they're growing.
