This is the reward for enduring a day with a temperature of 98 and winds gusting up to 40 mph.
They aren’t quite butterflies yet, but I was so excited when I found the monarch caterpillars!! I planted the butterfly garden a few years ago and this year we have SO many butterflies. I also found 10 caterpillars on my parsley.
We haven’t had the monarch butterflies yet, but we have hundreds (and hundreds) of Painted Lady butterflies. They are enjoying the Rough Blaze Star, one of the native plants that I bought at the Arboretum of the Plains in Hesston, KS at their spring sale. Their fall sale is this weekend. You can bet I will be there!!
