monarch caterpillars




When I feel down,God always lifts me up in some way.Yesterday it was the sight of these caterpillars that made me happy & wondering if I`ll be able to watch the process of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly.Time will tell.
I planted milkweed close to the house this year.I have tried many times to get wild milkweed to grow,but it hasn`t taken off.I usually put store bought milkweed down in the yard as it is ,after all,a weed,but I didn`t this year,or I may have not noticed the leaves being eaten up by the caterpillars.
