Garden: Butterflies To Be

I plant tons of milkweed which is my host plant and it attracts many butterflies to my yard here in Florida. Several times a year I get their offspring. Here on December 14th, I have probably 15 of these magnificent caterpillars on one plant alone, all soon to be butterflies.

Awesome! You know here in my farm community a milkweed is a BAD weed.... lol.
Good to know those neat plants are appreciated somewhere in the States!

Very cool, I've been trying to find milkweed seeds so I can plant some so the Monarch's will stop by for a longer time here in Michigan.

I took this picture the day before the Butterfly emerged, I thought it would take a few days once the chrysalis became translucent; I was really surprised to see the perfect tiny little wings of the butterfly in the cocoon.

Wow, those caterpillars are biggies, very healthy on your milkweed juice.

Don't they eat your tomatoes?

I love this-thank you for sending the pictures. I bought a butterfly kit and have been reading up on the plants to grow in my yard. Looks like you are having success with the milkweed-when I lived in Iowa these were the weeds you DID NOT want to have!
