In all my years of planting fall mums, I have never seen anything like what we've had this year in terms of butterflies. Has anyone else noticed it?? Sometimes, there are as many as 4 or 5 on one plant! Always, they are monarchs. Is something going on in the world of nature that I should know about? (Probably, as I know so very little...)
This guy is the only one brave enough to let me take his picture:
This guy would like to eat THAT guy, but can't jump high enough:
(How cute is he in his little warm-up jacket?? That was a gift from his non-knitting auntie.)
Funny thing noted on younger child's homework sentences: instead of "Yu-Gi-Oh cards" he wrote "Yu-Gi-Ho cards". Yu-Gi-Ho. Tee-hee. Sometimes it is so hard not to laugh, especially when older child yells it out loud.
FOs later, I promise!!
