It was like the secret garden

Weeding the garden on the weekend was like exploring a secret garden.
Look what I found! A large patch of swan plants and hundreds of caterpillars munching away. Think of all the monarch butterflies I'm giving the world!
It was definitely a case of making hay while the sun shone. For me and the caterpillars! It's been windy and wet ever since the weekend.

My garden is no longer big enough for swan plants, but I've seen lots of monarch butterflys this year!

Enjoy your weekend and I'm praying for sunshine too!!!

That is too cool. I love Monarchs. We are having wet weather too, but here spring is on its way in, so the world is coming back to life.
