Sister Sharon Rose instructed Gracie and I last night on the care of Monarch butterflies at Victory Noll. Sister Sharon’s character is one that butterflies would be drawn to and light upon.
Outside of the convent were milkweed plants mixed in with her flowers. Most people view milkweed as a weed but Sister Sharon thinks that weeds are plants that people just don’t want in their yard. Milkweed is the only plants that Monarch butterflies eat (who knew?). Did you know that butterflies taste with their feet?
Gracie had a great time and chattered non-stop to Hope when we got home. We were able to take 2 caterpillars home to watch their transformation into butterflies. She is very excited and I’m surprised that she hasn’t named them yet.
