I went out with the hose to wash off the aphids from the milkweed plants this morning, but couldn’t do it because the Monarch nursery has taken over. Some of these shots I took through the screen – sorry if they’re blurry – but I couldn’t resist taking a pic of how roly-poly some of these guys are getting. Is it weird to get excited over bugs in the garden? We’re expecting some heavy storms this afternoon, so I told them all to be careful. I’m not sure if they listened. Like most teenagers it’s hard to tell if they’re paying attention.

A fine crop of caterpillars you have there! Don’t you just love those cute antennae?
They do look like a healthy bunch of little chubsters.
Your teenagers are very cute.
