Monarchs!

My husband brought home a baby monarch the other day.  Some guys bring home flowers for their wives, or maybe candy, but mine brings caterpillars.  Does this man know me, or what? 


Things were fairly busy around here last week, so I didn’t even get around to taking a picture before it pupated, but when I opened the container to take the chrysalis out, there was another baby!  Evidently there had been an egg on the milkweed we were feeding it.  So now I’m raising another one.  Homefire’s monarch nursery is back in business!

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.
