Monarchs make a comeback!

I saw such a great story on the beautiful Monarch today on PBS and was so happy to learn that they’re making a comeback. Their numbers were down by a scary 75% last year!   Thanks to the government of Mexico seriously cracking down on illegal logging, (good weather and abundant milkweed growth in America were also big factors) these beautiful creatures will be a lot more abundant this year and our Spring will be even prettier

I don’t get to see many butterflies living here in the big city (NYC), but it warms my heart to know these colorful, gorgeous creatures are thriving and multiplying.  Butterflies officially make it Spring for me and I can’t help but smile 😉
