Monarchs at Marquez
We're a monarch butterfly nursery! What a difference a day makes! Today a monarch butterfly emerged from its chrysalis in one of our raised beds. We opened the bed to let it fly away. Also, the children at lunch recess saw five monarch caterpillars in the butterfly garden. The caterpillars move quickly around the butterfly garden and are eating a lot of milkweed. Maybe we'll have some more form chrysalises!
