So anyway.....There's some excitment happening in Good-Dee's yard! Last year I planted some milkweed in the yard - Monarch butterflies love milkweek, in fact that is the only plant they will lay their eggs on, that is why I planted it. So last night, Goods & I inspected the milkweed that is about to bloom and........WE HAVE BABY MONARCH CATAPITTERS! (okay calipillers to everyone else)
I'll give you a looksie
Hummm...maybe a closer looksie will help!
It is (I need to name it yet) not more then 1/4 inch long. And befriended a tiny misquito - how sweet. It must be a very social catapitter - maybe I should name it "Paris" - I think not, and don't get me started on HER!
We found a half of dozen little ones on the plants. Hopefully they will turn out like this one from last year-
More exciting news, it's Fish Fly season in Michigan
You can read about Fish Flies here - becuase I'm not reposting what I just wrote about them, which I lost! urrrrr
Goods, in his lederhosen and I are off to Frankenmuth - have a great weekend!
