Good morning my Tuesday FRIENDS!
This is a quick one today as I'm running later than normal and really must dash off to work soon. It's getting harder and harder to not resent the measly 12 hours a week I work. LOL!
I finally finished the Monarch painting!!!
Which is perfect timing because the Monarchs have returned 😊
One very busy lady laid hundreds of eggs on my tiny little newly sprouted milkweed plants.
I brought in one little leaf and it had 11 eggs on it. They have all hatched and we have 10 little caterpillars now. One died right away which happens often. Six of the 10 remaining are not looking healthy and will probably not make it. they are often hatched with a virus.
Every time I have to bring in a new leaf or partial leaf for feeding it has at least one new egg on it. So I'll keep replacing the ones I've lost sort of :)
I've never had Spring eggs before. It's always been late summer or fall. I guess the word is out that the milkweed is here 😄
These little ones are super tiny when hatched. Here are a couple of photos for reference.
So that's what's happening in my world this week ♥
