Monarch on Milkweed

Monarch butterflies are beginning visit our milkweed plants, which always makes us happy.

Although milkweeds can be a trap for honeybees (, they are required for Monarchs to feed and lay their eggs. Monarchs are in steep decline due to habitat loss and herbicide use, so we try to help them out when we can, by growing milkweeds in the odd corners of our yard.

  2. There’s a big batch of milkweed near my house but I have yet to see a Monarch on it. Lots of other butterflies, but no Monarchs. #keepingmyfingerscrossed


  3. Oh! It’ll happen! As you say, keep your fingers crossed! 🙂
