Gardening with Monarch Butterflies

Monarch Butterfly Garden.

For several weeks I saw a Monarch Butterfly flying through the yard so I decided to buy two milkweed plants since Monarchs look for milkweed to lay their eggs on so the Monarch Caterpillar can eat the leaves before forming a chrysalis.  I saw the butterflies landing on the plant several times and I have seen several Monarch Caterpillars on the plants but no chrysalis so far unless they are so hidden that I can’t see them.  The caterpillars grow very quickly because they are constantly eating the leaves of the plant.  Still waiting to see if the 5 caterpillars that I currently see will each turn into a chrysalis.
