Today we released our 102nd monarch butterfly for 2019.  Raising monarchs is one of my favorite things about summer. It’s such a miracle to watch them grow from a teeny tiny egg, through the stages of a caterpillar, into a chrysalis and emerge as a miraculous butterfly. ⁣
⁣
This season seemed to start really early (we found eggs a few weeks before Memorial Day) and is lasting a lot longer- we still have about 6 caterpillars and 15 chrysalises... whereas normally we release our last few the first week of school.  The girls were able to take a few into their classes and share with their classmates this incredible life cycle! ⁣
⁣
If you want to learn more about raising monarchs, check out my story highlights on Instagram.  I saved a ton of info there from last summer... and I’m always happy to chat and share advice! ⁣

A monarch cat munching away on a common milkweed stem, before the leaf tilts and hangs. The cat then crawls to the tip and starts to eat the leaf back up to the stem.  I just found him today. He’s the only one left in my garden. Beauty in Random Observations of the everyday. identity and intrigue. Playing with Mother Nature - Stay Curious - Be Kind.

Not a day goes by where we don't have a new #monarch in the house! Liliane and Indie eclosed early this morning and are absolutely #beautifulgirls, completely #healthy too! Six caterpillars left to form their chrysalides, waiting on many more to eclose. Loving every moment of it.

Shavua tov! Each of the 5 #MonarchCaterpillars we found on our little patch of milkweed transformed into a beautiful green and gold #chrysalis about 10 days ago, and today one of them suddenly turned bright orange and black like the wings of a #MonarchButterfly!

Found this beauty in the field and since it looks like rain I brought her in to dry her wings some more. If she was ready to fly, I wouldn't have been able to catch her!!

Suction feet.
This monarch caterpillar looks like it has little magnets holding it in place, upside down on my milkweed. Such amazing little creatures!

I think, after 26 days, I'll have to move my caterpillar condo
Madame Spencer has finally discovered that they live here now, too 😂
No #monarchcaterpillars were harmed in the making of this video 😊❤️
