    I’m quite excited! I have never had a butterfly spend the night in my garden before (not counting any that fluttered into my enclosure and couldn’t get out). Now I have two – a female and a male – resting in the branches of a small tree that we have in a pot on the deck.

    Earlier, they were sitting one on either side of a swan plant stalk. Then the female flew off, fluttered around around a while, and settled on the tree. A few minutes later, the male also took off and flew around, before coming to rest close by. I’m wondering if a bit of Monarch romance is in the air!

    In any case, I’m just excited to have them for a sleepover in our little tree. 🙂

    Unfortunately, I didn’t see them the next morning. I would have liked to get a photo! I photographed them in the tree, and my partner joked that I was the paparazzi!

    I like your boy’s description, Tanya. I might use that if we ever see it in our garden (my kids are 5 and 8). 🙂
