The Sign Works!

Monarch Butterflies spotted the sign and stopped at the Waystation.  Most of them looked faded and ragged, which may indicate that they have migrated from Mexico or a warmer part of Texas.  The arrival of the Monarchs was a welcome site, as very few have been seen in the Automatic Garden after being in a drought for several years.

Of course, if helps to have the Monarch’s favorite Milkweed or Butterfly Weed available.  It is the plant the butterflies lay their eggs on to ensure another generation will continue the journey.

The Monarch Caterpillar can munch through quite a few Butterfly Weed plants before forming their chrysalis.   Check out Monarch Watch by going to the website on the sign.

    So glad those butterflies can read! 🙂 I need to plant some milkweed here. I see the adults migrating through, but have never seen the caterpillars. Fun!
