My little Monarch is gone. She emerged on March 1st and I last saw her on the morning of March 31st - my March miracle Monarch. It was quite a journey watching her entire life in our backyard. She was a survivor to the end. She braved the many rainy days we had and seemed to enjoy the warmth of the sun when it finally came out by flapping her wings and climbing high onto the Hummingbird Sage where she lived. I treasure the days she was with me and she will always have a place in my heart and memory.
If you are traveling to the Central Coast of California you can find my photography for sale in the Gallery at Marina Square on the Embarcadero in Morro Bay and in the Cayucos Art Association Gallery at the foot of the Cayucos Pier.
