Yesterday I posted photos of this year's butterfly garden. In the times I've been out there, I've only seen one white butterfly, but it wasn't a small cabbage white butterfly. It was a brilliant white, larger than a cabbage white. It moved too fast for me the identify any other markings, so its identity is a mystery.
Monarch butterflies are something children take an interest in. They certainly are beautiful to look at! In school they may have learned about the perilous migration of the Monarch. Some classrooms hatch them. Others may take part in regional tracking through Monarch Watch.
We have a nice collection of butterfly books in our children's room, too!
