Grace & I went on a walk this morning with a specific mission in mind ~ we were searching for milkweed hoping to find several monarch caterpillars on the milkweed leaves. I would love to find monarch caterpillars so Grace could observe the lifestages of a monarch butterfly. We were very excited to find several milkweed plants this morning, however, we did not find any caterpillars. Despite the lack of caterpillars, Grace collected several milkweed leaves in her bucket to bring home in order to examine them more closely. Grace was fascinated by the milky liquid that oozed from the leaves onto her fingers. Grace & I will continue on with our search for the monarch caterpillars!
