If you plant it, they will come.

I have treasures I do not own.

I have waited for years for Monarchs to come to my Butterfly weed.

Finally, they came and laid eggs on the Asclepias tuberosa.

Now there are caterpillars eating the Asclepias leaves as they should.

I hope they pupate where I can watch over them.

(I do not interfere with wildlife unless necessary.)

I am thrilled they are here. They are treasured guests.

I hope the cycle continues for years to come.

More Monarchs…More caterpillars…

Thanks to some seeds that I saved from another garden.

My dreams are small. My treasures are alive.

Life is precious.
