Monarch Caterpillar's

It is that time again!
Time to watch caterpillar's change to butterfly's!
Don't worry, we look after them very well, we just watch.

There is hardly any milkweed around at the moment.  We found a small shrub of it nearby to last's year patch.  There were some tiny caterpillar's on it!  Meet "Munchie". 
After this little guy grows up and makes the transformation, we'll be putting this milkweed branch back at the milkweed patch so the other eggs and tiny caterpillars we can't see can have a chance.  And this year, I am definitely going to try to grow a patch of milkweed, you'd think that would be easy given its a weed!
