Raising this monarch 🐛 into a butterfly 🦋 !! It’s eating so much every day and I can’t wait to see it go into its chrysalis!! Such a neat experience. Sadly their population is dying out due to humans staying pesticides and destroying their food sources. So I thought it would be a good idea to try and help one along on their journey! You can help too! Look into raising Monarchs for the monarch migration. There is lots of information on the web about it and they don’t require a lot of expensive things. It’s also a beautiful life cycle to watch and if you have kids they can learn a lot from observing them. It’s a great thing :) #butterfly #butterflies #monarchbutterfly #monarch #caterpillar #lifeisbeautiful #lifecycle #nature #naturephotography #mothernature #mothernaturerocks #bubblestheferret #bubbles #milkweed #milkweedformonarchs

Plant milkweed for the monarch butterflies with these milkweed seed bombs! These tiny balls are made with clay, compost and stratified common milkweed seeds. There are 8 that come in this cute #africanfabric drawstring bag. #milkweed #wilkweedseedbomb #seedbombs #monachbutterflies #supportrefugees #africanfabric #earthfriendly

When shooting in the #goldenhour, it really doesn't matter what the subject is! 🌅 This is a #milkweed plant that, ironically, is at the sunset of its life 🤪 but somehow it's never looked more stunning! 🧡

We are currently working on the season finale of The Wild Life in which we will be exploring the mystery of metamorphosis and talking with Dr. Weiss of Georgetown University. We’re also looking for folks who’d like to help us out by sharing with us what they think happens during metamorphosis.

Checking out the Monarch caterpillars again today! They are eating Asclepias tuberosa also known as butterfly weed, a species of milkweed native to eastern North America. Butterfly Weed is an important nectar source for Monarch butterflies and its leaves provide essential food for developing Monarch caterpillars. #monarchs #monarchbutterfly #ecologicallandscaping #nativeplants #milkweed #supportthemonarch #growmilkweed #gardens #gardendesign #garden #landscape #landscaping

🌟 🌿🐝 Workshop Announcement: Twinning Cordage from Bast Fibers with Ray Bush . . . Join long time Ishpeming local, botanist and wild crafter, Ray Bush on learning the basics of using plants for fibers! After going through the basics of obtaining bast fibers from raw dried milkweed and nettle stems, we will use a simple method to take the stems and transform them into a rough cord. The process is similar for both and applicable to other species as well. . . #yooper #marquette #michigan #cordage #nettle #milkweed #savethebees #inthenorth #thenorthremembers #forthetreesandbees

I’m crazy about nature babies...baby animals...baby bugs...and yes, baby plants!! Checkout this seedpod on my milkweed. It is bursting open and when the wind comes each of those seeds will be released and able to plant in soil. Each of those little seeds represent a potential milkweed plant. Each plant will provide food for caterpillars and nectar for bees and hummingbirds. All of this will give my kiddos and me countless hours of watching and learning. Absolutely beautiful and absolutely miraculous. Crazy to think I spent most of my life ignoring all of this amazingness in my own backyard . Be still my heart. 😍😍😍😍 ________ #milkweed #wonderofnature #outdoorlearning #explorenature #optoutside #vitaminn #natureconnection

For those of you who have forgotten the brand of hypo allergenic down pillows I love, here is the information again www.ogallalacomfort.com. They are giving a very substantial discount to my followers but you MUST give the code RELA20 to get it. I am partial to the SEQUOIA in king size medium density. I also really like their all cotton pillow protectors which are sold separately. Whatever you purchase will arrive in a terrific cotton carrying bag that is perfect for taking your pillow with you when you travel. I will be taking ours on our road trip tomorrow #bedding #downpillows #ecofriendly #monarchbutterfly #milkweed

I'm so behind on posting. Truthfully, I have been more focused on creating content for Patreon and planning for local events. Instagram is just not fun anymore and I can't keep up with the ~aLgOriThm~. 🤷 I woke up at the buttcrack of dawn today to try to get ahead of the forecasted thunderstorms and drive down the shore. The storm must have changed course because my weather app told me it was already raining down there (I'm about an hour and a half away from the closest Jersey beaches). So, I went back to sleep. And slept until noon. Still raining down the shore, but the weather up here was alright. Humid but at least the sun has made some appearances. I did end up taking photos of the Lunar Tides collection — which is what all the ocean themed pieces have come to be known as — at a local park. I will likely do an IG preclaim type thing later today. I'm still determined to get those ocean photos though. 🌊

This morning had 10 eggs hatch. Then on our walk, mostly to get cuttings for my jars, found 4 eggs and 7 more cats. I have decided to go the jar route with cuttings as I think my potted plants may have pests I just can’t find as almost every cat that I had have died 😢🐛 I really checked out my cuttings and that is how I found some of the new cats and eggs. I have some early cats in jars now, hoping I got them before infestation. Time will tell. #raisingmonarchs #monarchs #monarcheggs #caterpillars #monarchcaterpillars #milkweed #butterflies #raisingbutterflies

My first #MonarchEgg of 2018! I never saw mama... 4 days as egg, 14 as #monarchcaterpillar 🐛 #14days in #chrysalis... and then #FLIGHT! Is this a #challenge? To see what I can #incubate, gobble and #metamorphosize into 32 days? Hmm... #gameON ! Will my marriage survive another summer cohabiting with #insectsinthelivingroom ? Time will tell...

These tiny little things are fast. I moved them to a new container and put inside a #butterfly cage, so that I wouldn't have issues with too much humidity and grow mold. Well, 2 of them were found on the mesh, one actually outside the cage. These guys are smaller than a rice grain and these are very small leaves. Silly little #monarchcaterpillar I'm trying to keep you safe! #milkweed #monarch #pancreaticcancersurvivor #wahehope
