Monarch waystation

3 May

At the Titan Garden we are proud to be a certified Monarch Waystation through Monarch Watch. Being a waystation means that we have made a commitment to grow certain plants that support the monarch migration, plants that allow monarchs to stop on their long, multi-generational migration and feed and reproduce to continue the journey. One of the critical plants for the migration is milkweed. There are many types of milkweed, but we have chosen two for our garden, planted them only 18 months ago, and have been watching every since.
Last week we were rewarded when there was an initial sighting of one monarch caterpillar.


We were ecstatic but within days, our sighting of one caterpillar was eclipsed by our sighting of dozens of monarch caterpillars- up to 25 in a single day!
So please enjoy some pictures from our monarch party in the Titan Garden. We feel honored to have assisted with such an amazing journey


Safe travels, little guys!
