Monarchs & Milkweed

Last fall, another homeschooling mom gave us some milkweed to attract Monarchs. The last freeze seemed to kill most of it, but now the 2 plants are small, but growing. And, this weekend, we saw a Monarch land on one of them repeatedly! (The aphids are all gone from the freeze... hopefully we've seen the last of them.) We are eagerly awaiting our first caterpillars.

I LOVE all your nature studies, including all the beautiful pressed flowers.
