Yes I know that virtually every kindergarten class around the country does this in the fall. But we found a Monarch Caterpillar and put it in our Butterfly habitat, fed it milk weed and it has made its cocoon. I thought I would share those updates as well. We followed a cocoon last year in the garden, but we thought it was neat to be able to watch it everyday. (And keep it off my obedient which it seemed to really like to chow on)
Interesting fact: Did you know that milkweed flowers smell just like lilacs? At least very similar...I was kind of shocked but have been walking around with one shoved half way up my nose ever since...(you may have guessed I love lilacs)
I know I know I just have an overabundance of information today.
