We had an unusual experience at Lowe's today. I was in the garden spot looking for something to plant that will make it through our summers--ain't much, and the garden lady asked me if i was planting a butterfly garden. I wasn't but do have milkweed already. If you aren't aware, monarch butterfly caterpillars devour them, make their cocoons and of course bemoe the beautiful large monarch. Back to the story... the milkweed they had were covered with caterpillars, and the milkweeds were decimated. The lady was concerned the caterpillars would die from running out of food, and the manager refused to buy more milkweed till these were sold. Despite their condition, they weren't marked down. What is this guy thinking? So, we got a box, and picked off about 50 or so caterpillars, and brought them home to eat my milkweed!
Our green good deed for the day!
