What do you get when 25,00 thousand or so monarch butterflies come to spend the winter in a ecalyptus grove just a few miles from the Red Door? This morning I saw the first monarchs tasting the oregano plants in my butterfly garden. Who doesn’t like Italian food? It is a sure sign that the seasons are changing when the butterflies stop by on their yearly migration. The first time I visited the grove, I thought the trees had an unusual number of orange leaves. Then I realized those were the butterflies hanging on the leaves. What a sight. Then there is butterfly sex…..doing it in the air.
