Monarch Butterfly - Chrysalis Tree!
Please take the time to read a wonderful post about the magnificent Monarch butterfly by Sharon Lovejoy...you may find her post just here! She tells us what we must do to save the butterflies! Sharon is a fantastic writer and quite honestly is someone that I truly admire, a great lover of nature and words.
The most marvelous thing, Sharon received a gift of a chrysalis tree....a twiggy tree with monarch butterfly cocoons on the branches! Can anyone imagine receiving such a gift? What a wonder!
(Also, Sharon has a giveaway on there for a teak table for your patio or deck....you need to email her and you must be in the continental United States, but if you are interested, then you can say I told you about it!)
I have written about the Monarch butterflies before. We saw hundreds of them on Arabia Mountain the first week of October in 2012 but we have never seen them in large numbers like that since then. We need to do all we can for the Monarch butterfly, we CANNOT lose this beauty, we MUST NOT.
