No Monarchs

Good morning friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your humble doggie host Chester L. W. Stephens. 


This year we left lots of milkweed plants growing in the garden in hopes of getting some monarch butterfly caterpillars. No luck! In fact, we only saw one or two monarch butterflies the entire summer!


But we have some photos from a couple years ago to show everyone.

  9. Mommy's friend sent her some milkweed seeds so she could get some monarchs, but the milkweed didn't even want to grow properly. Home monarchs aren't going to go extinct. Great photos you have there.

    1. You can get a tropical type of milkweed that grows well in Florida. It's a lot smaller, and it has pretty orange flowers. The monarchs love it just as much as the regular kind.
