Weekly Scribblings -- Waystation

    A Monarch Waystation Garden 

Last spring's early happy sighting 
Group of scouts, Monarch butterflies 
Looking to find some Milkweed plants 
Twelve other varieties too 

Leaves to attach their fertile eggs 
Leaves for caterpillars to eat 
Flowers whose pollen insects love 
sustenance for the family 

Mating, baby growing ends,  
they're ready to go north or south 
North to stay cool, south to be warm 
A pleasant stay this stopover 

Seeing and knowing Nature's treat 
Sets folks planting flowers plants 
Where Monarchs recreate and play 
A Monarch Waystation Garden

Oh, I'm happy to see someone use the prompt for the monarch waystation! You PLANT milkweed? I can't stop my narrow-leaf from taking over the beds and paths!

A Monarch way station --- what a happy thought! Interestingly, milkweed is the bane of farmers but beloved by Monarchs.

I actually leave the milkweeds growing in my garden and weed around them. I also plant dill for the swallowtails. Love the monarch garden!
