Is that time of the year when the Monarch butterflies return to garden to lay their eggs, and their favorite host plant is the Milkweed. I can never have enough of these plants around; the good news is that the wind carries the seeds all over the garden and volunteers pop up anywhere. Milkweed is a hardy plant, usually one Monarch will lay a few eggs per plant and days later the caterpillars will eat it in a day. It takes a couple of weeks to recuperate and the plant is back up and running again.
This week at the DragonFly Garden.
The Irises are back.
A blue jay couple is building a nest in my Plumeria tree.
