It is -5 degrees

June and July is a busy time feeding caterpillars fresh milkweed and tapping their poop out of the bottom of Mason jars each morning. The chrysalides hatching in August makes the silly chores worthwhile. I’m looking forward to this next August to take early morning photos. It’s only taken me 7 years of rest after my last baby to get out of bed early enough for good light. I’m finally feeling rested.

A Monarch Chrysalis.

I was caring for this beautiful flower for my best friend. She moved 3 hours north to Michigan's wine country on a beautiful lake and didn't have an established garden to move her favorite flowers. I left a small barely rooted stalk I'm hoping grows back this summer.

Is this the smallest honey bee in the world?
