Monarch Butterfly Milkweed Magnet

IMG_0001We use the skills that we gain from attending lectures at the Disney Flower and Garden Festival.  We had learned that the Monarch butterfly is an endangered species and we can help them by planting milk weed bushes.  Last year we planted one milkweed bush that we received from the show in our backyard.  This year we bought six plants from our local home improvement center and began planting them in our front yard.  Before we finished planting all six, a Monarch was flitting around and watching our gardening skills.  I ran into my house and grabbed my iPhone to capture the picture above.
