The Monarchs Are In Town.

TODAY it's very warm in our part of Oregon. Most parts of the state, I would imagine.
While weeding this morning before it got too hot I hosted a Monarch passing through. The lilies were irresistable and this big guy/gal stopped by. Are they migrating? Did they just hatch somewhere close by? Time to google butterflies.
I'll post more later. Just thought I would drop this in early in case I don't get back to the computer.
We are going to Nehalem tomorrow to visit with friends and enjoy their new house. The Mister is off right now buying a housewarming gift - femminismo

right now I watch the cocoons hanging on the trees as it is way too cold for them. When they break ut it will be spring and warm again..

I've never had the pleasure of watching a (mass) butterfly migration up close and personal ... I can only imagine how incredible it must be.

Don't you just love it when mother nature gives a gift, like this butterfly. How inspiring!

Jeanne, I saw one when I was a kid (okay, okay, 12!) and it is indescribable. But I think it's more towards the fall of the year rather than summer... could be remembering it wrong. From the grass, up to the tiniest dots in the skies, butterflies everywhere. Millions. There had to be...
I hope you get to see one soon.
