A suprise treat in the garden

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Today was a lovely autumn day in the sunny Mangamahu .  Mummy was out in the garden planting some renga renga lilies.

    The monarchs here spend the winter in Mexico. Please don’t tell me that yours spend the winter in Antarctica.

  6. That is an unusual plant. Is that the seed pod?
    The butterfly may be passing through, or it may be looking for lodging. Apparently Monarchs can go into suspended animation during cold weather in sheltered spots. We had some that hung out in the yard all winter ( and it was a long wet pretty cold on here) and would appear on warmer sunny days. I think they hun out near the bushes where the dryer vent is. We tried to have some sort of blooming plants in sheltered spots for them. Quite surprising and we don’t know how, but they seemed to have made it through to spring (here). Maybe they are thinking “If it’s good enough for maremmas….”
