Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Monarch Caterpillars!

Apparently today was not the first day that the monarchs had been here. While going back to check out the seedpods, I spotted a little monarch caterpillar on the flower buds! I'm elated! This is a first for me, and I thought I'd have to wait until next year for this to happen.

When I went back to take pictures, I noticed a second one too. The first is a little over half an inch, the second just a little bigger. I'm not sure how long it takes from egg to larva, but they have to have been there for a while now.
