Monarchs Have Been Here and More by Mrs. Blackburn
Mrs. Simpson was weeding and ran across four Monarch caterpillars feeding on our Tropical Milkweed and Asclepias Tuberosa. Our sighting should appear on the Journey North Migration Map soon.
Our Passion Vine has grown rapidly since Terry Igo designed and added our trellis to the garden.
Besides Monarch and other butterflies, our butterfly garden has become the perfect habitat for some other creatures. Mrs. Simpson and I were transplanting our Wild Senna and this salamander was hiding down in the soft, wet dirt under the plants. Brave Mrs. Driskill captured him with bare hands so she could share the find with her fourth grade, science students.
