If it doesn't feel like spring where you are, maybe this will be a note of encouragement. While we sit here in northwest Ohio under yet another winter storm warning and listen to the freezing rain hit the windows, the Monarchs are on the move.
Our Little Acre is a certified Monarch Waystation and as such, receives periodic news from Monarch Watch. They tell us that the Monarchs began mating in Mexico at their overwintering sites in mid-February. The first weary and ragged travelers will begin showing up later this week in Texas. It will be the offspring of those that will make their way to our garden here.
Sometimes it's easy to get wrapped up in what's going on right around us that we sometimes forget that we're just a small speck in the grand scheme of things.
