Lots of larger caterpillars this weekend! Fingers crossed all of them make it to become adult butterflies. The male monarch (if it's the same one) is still flying around the garden. He was even here on Sunday when the sun was going in and out from behind the clouds most of the day. Also saw the regulars; duskywing, skippers. I should also mention on Friday, I saw what I think was a Marine Blue. I was inside on the phone and didn't get to run out and see. I only saw it from the window, but pretty sure that's what it was.
I should also note I visited the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers & Native Plants again to pick up some more native plants for my garden. Really loving these natives! This time around I picked up: red fairy duster, aster chilensis 'point saint george' and verbena lilacina.
Here are some photos from the past few days.
