This section for miscellaneous things that have happened over the years – and are stories worth telling.
For example, shortly after we moved into our house in October of 2000 we noticed a lot of Monarch butterflies – maybe 50 or so – feeding on a plant in the middle of our front yard. They were gone by February or so.
Some years the 50 or so, some years a lot more. Then in 2016 – more than 10,000 showed up. Why? I am not an expert, and the fact that they landed here doesn’t make me one. But my goodness they are beautiful. So one of these sub-pages are devoted to Monarch butterflies.
