Whew! Today, we are going beyond the halfway point, with over 275 healthy, adult Monarchs tagged and released this season! Today, should also be a personal record for me, with over 30 emerging this morning. There are still more coming! Sheesh...that's a lot of butterflies to tag!
I have been running myself ragged, working extra hours at work, taking care of all these little Monarch beings, and, not to mention, looking out for my loves: Steve, Jon, Piper, and Annie. My house needs a cleaning, the garden needs weeding, but it can wait, I suppose. I took a few moments this morning to watch and be astonished at one of nature's spectacles. Watching the Monarchs emerge continues to amaze me! I cannot wait to let them go today!
I have several friends that are also raising Monarchs now. People I hardly know are sending me e-mails and pictures. I love their stories! I love that they also feel the joy and the satisfaction that comes with raising Monarchs!
