Roxie and I are excited to begin our 2018 butterfly gardens!
Our new book “The Monarch” by Kylee Baumle is just packed with information about the Monarch eggs, caterpillars, chrysalis stage, and the eclosing of the beautiful Monarch! (This book is available on Amazon.com I’m recommending the book as a personal user and do not receive any compensation for my recommendation.)
Help save the pollinators and butterflies! Create your own special garden either in containers or in the ground by using a variety of milkweed plants and native host and nectar plants in your growing area!

Visit your nearest botanical garden(s) for information on butterfly and pollinator gardening.

This is the last Monarch to visit our butterfly garden in 2016. We enjoyed each and every one that we saw, and thank God for His creation and their beauty! The monarchs enjoyed our butterfly weed, milkweed plants, and butterfly bushes (this one is named “Ruby”) as well as the zinnias and impatiens blooming here.
Read more about Monarchs and their migration here and on other sites that you find when searching Google for “monarchs” and “migration.”
Remember to save your flower seeds and plant in the early spring to help make your environment more butterfly friendly!
