I've been finding monarch cocoons under my lotus leaves! Great place to stay nice and dry. My dill and parsley have been invaded- again! I planted tons of both in the butterfly garden but they seem to prefer my cooking herbs on the deck. Guess we will have more black swallowtails this year. Hopefully these will hatch out before spring.

My milk weed has most of the leaves eaten off, have yet to see a cat, but they must be there.

@addy1 Oh man do they love the Sedums! Never seen so many bees as on mine also! They are so easy to start also. Just break off a branch, stick in the ground and voila, another Sedum plant. They come in so many different varieties from short sprawling to very tall.

A couple days ago I saw a monarch caterpillar crawling around on Joe Pye Weed in one of my birdhouse gardens, so I made sure to check back. It was doing the "J" yesterday, and today it was a chrysalis.

Directly below it, I saw something jump, and realized it was a Western Chorus Frog. This second one in three days, and I rarely ever see them. This one was particularly stunning. I tried to get it to pose on a leaf, but it wanted nothing to do with it, and I didn't want to further stress it out, so I let it be.

Mine are full sun, I have one bunch in a shaded area, they do poorly. I do not water them at all. In fact water nothing except a few pots on the deck.

Do you have a place where you share your photos? I'd like to see more of your work!
I post a lot of my stuff here on the forum, but twitter is where I usually share all of my photos.

I occasionally post on instagram.
