Margaret has been focusing the back garden on native plants for a while now, including milkweed plants specifically to feed Monarch caterpillars. It’s worked rather too well, with the plants generally stripped to just sticks! But recently we had one create a chrysalis on the pool screen, and over the weekend it hatched. We didn’t see it emerge but there was an empty chrysalis, and a new Monarch Butterfly in the garden … Beautiful!
Margaret’s work in the front and back garden is growing well and there’s lots of flowers everywhere now! Here’s a selection:
After a couple of years of COVID-caused no-events, the Spring Fever In The Garden event returned this weekend and we headed in early this morning before the (big!) rains came … we didn’t buy any plants but enjoyed looking around and getting ideas!
