Not birds….but butterflies…..since we have an upcoming walk to find them. My luck with the regular kind of milkweed plants was a bust so this spring I planted two swamp milkweeds and I now have five monarch caterpillars.
I couldn’t believe how fast it happened; had not even seen a Monarch in my garden. I’m an “old lady” and if this excites me then I can just imagine how kids could be fascinated in their own back yard. I hope this type
milkweed continues growing; I am sure it got a head start with all the rain we have had this year. I am now an advocate for everyone to plant a couple of milkweeds and watch nature happen up close and personal.
