The monarch is a tricky beauty to translate. They are so pretty it almost looks fake. My kids and I raise butterflies every summer and this year we didn't have a lot of these beauties. They are disappearing but it doesn't have to be that way. You can start a monarch garden with just a little bit of milkweed and some wildflowers. Not only is it easy but it's amazing to watch them go through metamorphosis!
