Longwood Gardens Mid Morning

Today is a day for family time.
So we chose today as the day to renew our annual pass and make two trips to Longwood Gardens.

We are going back pending some thunderstorms this evening to see the night time version of "Light" at Longwood Gardens.

Monarch Caterpillars

The milkweed is disappearing with all these caterpillars around. I need to make sure to grab some seeds from the pods and get them into the ground so we have more for next year.

Some are forming chrysalis, and a couple have died before shedding their skin. Wonder what exactly happened (the ones that didn't make it weren't touched by human hand, so I am wondering if a disease or parasite may be the cause)...
