Monarch Mania


Check it out!

A Monarch butterfly chrysalis has appeared around the side of my house on some scraggly lantana that a mockingbird probably planted for me.

I don't "garden" on that side, particularly. Mostly, we just keep a path mowed from the gate to the yard. I've planted asclepias and other stuff there before, but have pretty much let both sides of the "path" go wild, since there's just the a/c over there and we don't use it for anything. How cool is that? I'll keep an eye on it...

Habitat in your backyard, people! That's what I'm talkin' about!

It's really interesting to see that the Monarch butterfly chrysalis is much different looking than my Painted Lady butterflies were!
