Monarchs Are Migrating

brown monarch s

…but their numbers are down 90% since 1992.  You can help by planting milkweed, which is their main food source.  Read more here.

This was another painted sketch done with my leftover brown paint.  I also did a monarch post with a collage; you can see it here.

    This is such a lovely painting!!! And there have been noticeably fewer butterflies around here lately. We must get more milkweed into the world.

    Yep. The count is really low. I do have a large milkweed garden on the north side of my house. Had two monarch caterpillars and my granddaughters were able to watch one emerge from his chrysalis in September. Good post.

    Lovely painting and beautiful collage. My mother keeps a wild field for butterflies, I will have to ask how the population has been this year. Thank you for the information, it is a good reminder how connected everything is.
