I have a nursery of Monarch butterflies in my backyard, all because of the milkweed plant that I planted in 2012. The plant has grown quite large and in April/May I had 35 cocoons scattered on posts, railings, walls, chairs, pots, willow tree…. Not all survived from that group but the ones that did brought joy watching the butterflies emerge and they come fluttering back to visit and lay more eggs on the plant. I counted 10 caterpillars, and 6 more cocoons yesterday.
But there is more new life! Here’s a photo of baby Rowan. I’m a proud grandma!
There is something very miraculous about new life!
Love, appreciate, share, commune, fear not and live! Take Joy, LR
