  1. There are some creatures that fill us with awe because they are so amazing with their beauty and their unimaginable journey each year. I know species come and go, but I’m not ready to see these lovely creatures part of our past yet. Thank goodness for the milkweed planters.

    1. Hi Christina – Monarchs are very special. They’re very scarce in the north, but I’m told they’re gathering down in Texas with winter coming on. I hope this is just a temporary trend of some kind.
