Okla. is on the 🦋 hwy and a lot of us found ourselves helping swallowtails and monarchs this fall, including 👋🏼. Next spring planting a couple of pots of parsley for the swallowtail 🐛 + milkweed + learning more from @myriadgardens
classes & website about what to plant just for these amazing pollinators. Let’s transform OKC back into a place of abundance for these creatures who help our crops so much.

| Right now, in Central and Southern Mexico, monarch butterflies are finishing their incredible 3,000 mile and 4-generation journey from the US and Canada and are settling in for the winter. This generation of monarchs will live happily in these warm climates for six to eight months until it is time to begin the whole journey again. They will then migrate back north for the summer, landing on milkweed to lay eggs for a new generation, and providing pollination to many plants along the way. With butterfly season coming to a close, we are wrapping up our #pollinatormonday
campaign. Thank you so much for following us on our journey this summer! Pollinator Mondays may be coming to an end, but helping pollinators should never stop. Continue to support pollinators and help save the Great Monarch Migration by planting milkweed in the summer months, avoiding mowing before fall, and choosing to practice organic lawn and garden care. You can always click the link in my bio to freshen up your knowledge about pollinators and to learn more about how to help. Thank you for choosing to be a #pollinantorhero
