  1. Last fall, a monarch “did it’s thing” on the fence right by my front door. At fist, I viewed the caterpillar with suspicion. Watched every day, and did manage to see it emerge from the chrysalis. Dry off, exercise wings, take a couple of test flights. And then go… Moral of the observation? Don’t pull out the milkweed that grows in your yard.
