2008 Monarch Butterfly Project

It has been a few years since I took the time to commune with the Monarch Butterfly but here I go again. If you want to join me just head to Wal-Mart or Home Depot and purchase some milkweed in the garden center God will handle the rest.

To keep up with my progress use the label Monarch Butterfly at the bottom of each post concerning said insect.

I have started with four plants and butterflies have already deposited eggs on all four. The eggs have since hatched and in weeks I expect developing chrysalises.

  1. Billy, we went to Home Depot and Lowes looking for this milk weed with no luck!! Lowes said it was to early for it...we said well Mr Billy has it!!! I guess we will keep looking.

  2. Wal-Mart on Dale Mabry just north of the 275 overpass had plenty last week.
    It was located a few pallets South East of the garden center entrance.
