Felix and I went walkies on the grassy knoll. He's pretending to sleep!
|The 'Grassy Knoll' filled with Milkweed|
In fact, they say that Monarch Butterflies are in danger, since farmers have cut back where the Milkweeds used to lay their eggs.
I leave my Milkweed to grow everywhere.
The moths have been at it for weeks, but the butterflies are now coming out!
The caterpillars are hatching, too!
It is such a pleasure ambling around the gardens with the cats.
|Another one I must identify!|
|Caterpillar and Mommy Monarch!|
|The Port Carling LIbrary hatched these a few years ago!|
Butterflies and Moths Caterpillars, too!
