PREPARING FOR THE MONARCHS—If you want to see Spring and nature in action all you need to do is take a look at the Milano Junction Memorial Garden in downtown Milano. Many of the beautiful garden plants are “springing” back up from last year and they have just added a few new ones, all done by community volunteers. All plantings were nectar and milkweed plants which will bring Monarch butterflies and many other winged pollinator friends the nutrients needed to continue their survival. Spring is when the Monarchs begin their flight from Central Mexico, passing through Central Texas on their migration northern bound. Milkweed is the only source of food those cute Monarch caterpillars eat to become butterflies. This community project at the Milano Junction Memorial Garden is fully supported by volunteers and is sponsored by the El Camino Real Chapter of Texas Master Naturalist in conjunction with the Friends of the Bailey Bank Building. Pictured are volunteers (l-r) Linda Jo Conn, Katherine Bedrich, Debbi Harris, Donna Lewis and Sue Taylor. Milano Junction Memorial Garden is a certified Monarch Waystation.
