First of all, these are not good pictures but when I saw these outside my window this evening, I just had to share.
Way back this summer I bought three milkweed plants.
Then I never planted them.
I have reasons.
The good news is, they survived.
Then today I had my unjust reward.
This is the reason I chose milkweed in the first place.
No, not the shrivelled, dried remains of the flowers....
This, this was what I found.
Three monarch caterpillars eating my plants.
It's why you need to plant them. They are all the caterpillars eat. If I'm lucky at least one will make it to be a butterfly.
How cool is that?
