Things I Heart | Monarch Butterflies

Introducing a brand new header for this series!!

A few weeks ago I did this post on butterflies in general...and I realized I should do a post which focused on my all-time favorite butterfly: the Monarch! I really can't say when my fascination with butterflies began, but I know I was at least 7...probably younger. Monarchs have always been my favorite and probably always will be. I love their bright contrasting colors which make them look royal in my opinion.

All photos were found via Pinterest, but if they linked else where those links are listed instead!

I know this photo was on the last post, but I wanted it to be included in this collection too because it was so beautiful!

I thought this picture was just amazing! It is of the Monarch just emerging from its chrysalis.

Thus is my collection of photographs of the Monarch butterfly. I could look at them all day long...but I wouldn't want to run you all off so I refrained from posting a ton! :) I'm sure you appreciated that!


  1. Helen, I love them too. We don't get as many around here as we used to. My sister grows swan plants specifically for them. Cheers

    1. I haven't seen many butterflies in person for awhile, but I would love to plant a flower garden with specific bushes which are known to attract butterflies!
