The Return of the Monarchs

Back in June, we released monarchs that we watched morph from tiny eggs into amazing caterpillars and finally, into magnificent butterflies.  Throughout the summer, we kept an eye out for any monarchs returning to our garden.  We saw many butterflies but no monarchs.  We were all slightly disappointed that all of our work in the butterfly garden to attract monarchs was not working.

And then came September!  Sawyer came running in to tell us of her find-monarchs landing on the milkweed!

 

Now we watch as daily, five or so monarchs flutter around our garden in preparation for their long journey to Mexico!
