Woke to rain this morning, temp around 61F. The sun did come out for a half hour or so and the temp went up. Then more clouds, the wind picked up and the temp started dropping, It's 55F and cloudy now...dark too! Seems every night I have to go out 5 mins earlier than the night before to put the chickens to bed.
Sally, I lock mine up in the spare bedroom when they first open for a day or two. Then the smell isn't so bad. I just have to make sure there is nothing in the room I will want for those days or it is a mad dash in and out again. The morpho's are so worth a few days of smell, the blooms are fascinating and the foliage beautiful. Mine will need to be moved inside to give them a chance to die back. Then I'll dig out the bulbs and store them til spring. Check out the video, Morphy opened!
Really enjoy seeing the images being added to this thread. I saw only one monarch last year...none this year. We used to see hundreds.
