You’ve come a long way, baby.

See the big rip in its wing? Looks like it may have found our milkweed just in time. It seems too tuckered to go much farther.

  1. poor thing! It must be very thankful for your kind garden!

  2. Beautiful photo Miss Rose!

  3. Terrific photo, Rose!

  4. We are just dying to have butterflies. Bella saw the first one of the season on Sunday (how appropriate!) a little cabbage white. I think we may try to plant milkweed. She desperately wants a butterfly garden.

  5. Oh how we love the monarchs. We are in Ontario, Canada and our milkweed and butterfly bush attract so many. I actually grew up in a little town with a little park called Point Pelee, that is actually a point that juts into the north end of Lake Erie. Every fall thousands upon thousands of monarchs gather there to muster up strength for the long migration south. I love how these beautiful creatures can connect us!! Maybe your little guy will make it up here!

  6. You can actually repair the wings of a Monarch butterfly, and then release it! Some how-to videos are online.
