All the monarchs were hung on the ceiling with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there! A Monarch Butterfly Christmas Story

All the monarchs were hung on the ceiling with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there…

Monarch butterflies must have room to hang down for at least two hours after hatching. This allows their wings to expand, and then dry.

But I heard him flapping as he flew out of sight, Happy Chrysalis to all, and to all a good night!

While fully dried butterfly wings aren’t strong enough to carry, say, a Christmas ball…they’ll help to elude predators, so they can find a great butter-love to start a new generation of magnificent monarchs.

    Hi Tony,

    A few of my gardening friends would get a kick out of some of your pictures that you have edited with words or sayings. However, I didn’t want to send them out without asking your permission. Would it be ok to forward a Christmas picture or two?

    Thanks.
