Thanks to Meredith's recent post, I've been paying more attention in looking for caterpillars. Yesterday I was rewarded, finding 2 monarch caterpillars on the milkweed. I found another today. I hope I'll be able to see the whole metamorphosis. It seems in years past, I'd lose the caterpillars, & figured birds got them. But maybe I just didn't look hard enough for the chrysalis. They do seem to kind of blend in. Nature's camouflage, I suppose.

oh, I hope you are rewarded with a butterfly to watch!
I keep thinking the same thing- pay attention you are given these sweet garden gifts- watch them!
