Things Change - Life Goes On

Monarch Caterpillars

The milkweed plants in my labyrinth are covered with dozens of Monarch caterpillars. They are eating the plants right down to the bare stems as part of a marvelous symbiotic relationship between the monarchs and the milkweed.

Things change and life goes on.
