Monarch Butterfly Story

This is a quick link to a story we all need to read. I knew about the migration of the Monarch butterflies. What I didn't know is that the migration destination was in danger of disappearing. We all need more butterfly plants! I'm going to my moms and dig some orange butterfly weed (Asclepiadaceae ) it grows wild in the field there. Monarchs love it and lay their eggs there.

I saw some of that orange butterfly weed on Kim and Victoria's Idaho blog earlier this week - it is beautiful! It delights me to see butterflies in my garden.

Have a great weekend!
