Say hello to...

a future Monarch butterfly.


At the moment he's living happily on this whorled milkweed. I planted milkweed because they are host plants for Monarchs. The butterflies lay their eggs on the milkweed which hatch into cute little caterpillars. The caterpillars feed on the plant and eventually transform into beautiful orange and black butterflies.
