Still Going Strong.
Even though the season is winding down we still have plenty of activity. Zebra longwing,White peacock,Monarch,Queens,and many skippers still adorn the yard and are actively multiplying.
I have stopped raising any caterpillars at this point and have let Mother Nature take it from here.I am actively planting and propagating for the spring in hopes of getting a head start.
Still actively keeping feeders and muddle going and making sure to have plenty of flat rocks out for basking. Plans for the new arbor and potting station are in the works.(My wife says all I ever do is plan)
On another note I watched a Queen fluttering around a wild vine which I have still not identified and almost removed once before, NOT HEEDING MY OWN WORDS "Until You Know Let It Grow" When I checked the vine today I noticed three 2nd instar cats! I still have to verify but I think it is Sarcostemma Clausum.
With temps staying in the 80s and upper 70s the butterflies should be really active this week. I get to go on vacation the week after so have to try and get a few more things accomplished by then. Wish me Luck.
