We are a Monarch Waystation!

 A few weeks ago, there were six monarch caterpillars on milkweed in our gardens. Today 4 monarch butterflies were flying in the gardens. I suspect they just completed their metamorphosis from egg, to larva (caterpillar), to butterfly - somewhere in our garden. So glad to see them!

 They seem to love the Verbena bonariensis best!

 I also saw them on Kiss-me-over-the-garden-gate (above), phlox and cleome (not pictured), and zinnias (below).

I'll be joining The Maple Hill Blog Hop and Fertilizer Friday.
