There are many different kinds of milkweed (aka Monarch caterpillar food 🐛) but we find scarlet milkweed to thrive the best in the hot and humid weather in the South. We are already beginning to see ours bloom and attract egg laying butterflies! . #monarchbutterfly#milkweed
I promise tomorrow I’ll post a fabulous soup recipe. Today, it’s boys and butterflies. Also- happy mercury retrograde, there was a fire AND a flood in my kitchen today 🦋 🦋🦋🦋 yup. . . . #noreallytho#mercuryretrograde
I love that my niece writes poetry and loves animals more than anyone I know. 🥰 If this card she made for me is any indication, she also thinks I’m a butterfly ninja. 😉 I’m guessing the triple rainbow is the one we saw last August at Star Lake (British Columbia, Canada). 🇨🇦 ~ ~ ~ ~ #wildlifewalk#explorenature @marmalademarla

Butterfly bushes are extremely invasive in our region. So much so that they've banned the sale of seeded varieties. Only seedless are available. We have 8 seeded on our property, placed their by the previous owner. She clearly loved her pollinators because our yard fills up with butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds galore. So what's the environmentally friendly thing to do? How do you maintain balance when hundreds of pollinators depend on these every summer? I'm torn between replacing and just practicing prevention (not letting the flowers go to seed). But aren't they so beautiful?
What wildflowers will you plant this year? Whose imagination will you touch? Quote by Lady Bird Johnson - if you are not familiar with the wonderful Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center (@wildflowercenter ) and website, I highly recommend them. It is one of my main references for plant information, a true gift to the world.
Sometimes getting lost can be a good thing. Last summer, while hiking the Nipigon Trail in northern Ontario, I took a wrong turn and started following the railway tracks. Even though it was supposed to be a fast-paced hike, once I spotted milkweed plants (Asclepias syriaca), I couldn’t resist stopping to check the undersides of the leaves. Every plant I checked had Monarch eggs or larvae on it. Incredible! ~ ~ ~ ~ #wildlifewalk#explorenature 🐛🦋 ...

"Hillside, Narcissus" By Nora McFarlane There's a grassy slope not far away Where thousands of Narcissus bloom, And I catch my breath, as I watch them sway Tossing their sweet perfume. Gaily they nod their dear little heads And smilingly welcome me, As they spring up fresh from their winter beds, Eager for company. Their round white faces fair and clean Are purer than frost or snow, ...

Spring is here. Butterflies are emerging! This little guy fell in the shade and his wings needed to dry... he wouldn’t to let go of me for a long time so I gardened while hang drying a monarch 🤷♀️ 🦋 #hellofriend#butterfly
Learning about the lifecycle of the butterfly has been quite amazing!!! I’ve learned so much along with the kiddos for instance #didyouknow during the chrysalis stage the caterpillar digest itself to get rid of all the unnecessary body parts. 😳😳 I had no idea!! Nature is quite beautiful and so hard to understand sometimes just how everything has it’s unique way of working but that’s why it’s beautiful just like the miracle of Jesus’. Can u guess what we will have for supper tonight?! A whole bunch of cocoons, caterpillars and butterflies lol 😆 #scienceisfun ...
So we had these little guys arrive today from @insectlore and forms part of one of little man's birthday gifts; a butterfly garden. It's so cool though, as they arrive with all the food they need to grow, and habitat requirements and you watch them grow and move around and then ultimately watch them grow to become butterflys. Little man has been beside himself waiting for them to arrive!! Every door knock "is that my caterpillars" 😂 We made them some paint butterfly and caterpillars to keep them company too. 👍
From the milkweed plant I purchased 2 years ago, it has re-seeded itself and now I have young plants coming out everywhere in the butterfly garden. I am so happy. And these two little plants already with blooms! all I can say is YAY! #milkweed#butterflygarden

Monarch caterpillars have only job in life and that is to eat milkweed, which has a toxic substance with in it. This is why most creatures will avoid them like the plague. Their black, yellow and white stripes are a natural warning that they are not to be eaten. Caterpillars shed their skins five times, and each time, they eat the skin when they are done. The last time they shed their skins, the chrysalis is revealed. The stages between moltings are called instars. If you see a cat that was actively moving about one day, and is suddenly ...
The flower bush in this photo sits at the front of my house and when I open the door, I can often hear it humming before I see it. The branches are well laden with bees and the more elegant visitors like this butterfly or the flighty honeyeaters stop by for a taste of nectar too from time to time. It is easy to attract the insects and small birds - lots of pretty, flowery bushes or natives located in a sunny place with spots of shade and a few bowls of water. Grow it and they will come.
🌸Spring Gardening Projects Completed! 🌸🎉🎉 It was our first week of no rain and sunny days here. So I made use of the extra daylight and worked on some outdoor projects that had been piling up over the winter: Repurposed an old wooden ladder and made into a butterfly cocoon nursery. Added it’s first occupant, a monarch cocoon that had fallen off its original place during the rains. Also experimenting with another butterfly food this season besides, the 2 types of milkweed that I have, added Sea Lavender; Then finished up some of the rock gardens and ran an electric ...
Day 3: Yesterday I spent my creative energy on plotting out raised beds and pathways for our new backyard garden. We will have a kitchen garden with loads of herbs and some fruits and vegs, a flower cutting/butterfly garden, and space for my Farmer Boy Lucas to grow his own carrots, pumpkins, and flowers. Hoping for it to become a Nature Retreat for us and the wildlife alike. #createeveryday#gardeningiscreativework
This Butterfly Rainforest is a 6,400-square-foot screened exhibit exposed to typical Florida weather conditions, resulting in a more natural environment for the butterflies and plants. It is home to more than 1000 butterflies! Truly an experience. 🦋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you guess the original color of the butterfly ? I’ll post the original on my stories
