In recent weeks some of my readers have expressed interest in planting Milkweed in their yards to help the Monarch butterflies. As you know, the caterpillars of our beloved orange and black butterflies require the leaves of this plant.
The North Carolina Arboretum is having a Monarch Day on Saturday, September 19th. I will not be in town but would invite any of my local readers to go, especially if you have interest in purchasing and growing Milkweed, or learning more about this lovely butterfly and its lifecycle. The Arboretum will be selling plants all day and will have events for adults as well as children. Click here to see the schedule.
Happy Wednesday to you all!
