    Greetings & happy New Year from New Zealand – cant imagine a white world outside & enjoy monarchs all year round – a few in winter do carry on laying! it attempts to compensate for the wasps killing all the caterpillars in summer in some areas. Not inside my house though!
    Well done Monarch Watch.

    Congratulations! This is my first time on a blog, too, and we’ll be watching all the developments from our flower farm in Arkansas, a favorite visiting place for the Monarchs.

    Congratulations on this site! I live in Corpus Christi, TX. Just a note to tell you that my plants still have live caterpillars on them in Feb. ’08. They have been active thru our winter here.

    This is also MY first time on a blog! It is going to be fun to read about other monarch lovers adventures from so many parts of the country and world. Wow! I love to raise monarchs and share it with children as I work in a child care program with the YMCA. I have turned lots of kids on to caterpillars of all kinds.

    I love this blog it is so easy to offer anecdotal observations. Thanks for offering it to us.
    Today it being the 1st day of schoolin Fairfield Ct , i celebrated the day in a 1st grade class and a 5th grade class teaching the kids about the monarch. I havd an aquarium with one last caterpillar still eating and 7 chrysalis waiting to emerge. The 1st graders noticed one of them vibrating and I dismissd it to figety kids near the aquarium. But, alas the twitching chrysalis was in fact the oldest and it was getting ready to get itself out of the very snug jacket. So I left the aquarium for the kids to watch and hopefully be surprised by a brand spanking new butterfly in the AM.

    By the way, I had asked the kids to show me how they usually got their clothes off when they get ready for bed at theend of the day and the shimming dances that ensued. I then told them that thsat was how our friends shed their skin and was luck to have a sample of a crumpled up instarr shell. Basolutely the most fun I ahd all day!
