Raising Monarch Butterflies near the beach in Carlsbad CA

Affordable Carlsbad HomesLakeshore Gardens is Carlsbad’s Premier 55+ Gated Community near the beach. We are a community of 383 homes with 10 lakes.

One of the fun things to do is to “raise” Monarch Butterflies. I know of 5 families that are planting the milkweed that the Monarch Butterfly likes to feed on and lay their eggs on.

Carol has several caterpillars, some in chrysalis, and this morning the butterfly in the picture came out of the chrysalis and spread “his” wings. We do not yet know how to tell if they are male or female. This is a fun hobby and we are able to do this here in Lakeshore Gardens because of the temperate climate and the presence of other Monarch Butterflies.

For information on moving to this great 55+ Gated Community email me or call Steve at 760-473-2509.
