For years I’ve wanted a butterfly garden, but never took the steps to make it a reality.  This February I took the plunge, planting two milkweed host plants in my central Florida garden.  The butterflies came and laid eggs. I only know this because one day, about 3 weeks later, caterpillars appeared on March 8. … Continue reading Monarch Butterfly Quest (Captivated by Chrysalis)
