Fred & Ethel

A number of weeks ago, I bought home a bouquet from the St. Paul Farmer's Market that included some ornamental milkweed. There were complications. Eggs hatched and we found we had two new pets - Fred and Ethel.

Yesterday, Ethel emerged. We are still waiting for Fred. We hope to release them in the Garden tomorrow afternoon. Ethel enjoyed some diluted honey this morning but is staggering around a bit. Hope she is ok.

I am so glad you have these examples of new life in your presence. And you are so lucky they came with the bouquet - I've been letting the milkweed grow in my yard and can't find any caterpillars on them at all!

What a neat surprise! Good for you Kathy! (I'm still seeing monarchs migrating through my backyard.)
