At the Butterfly Garden this week most of the time was spent looking, unsuccessfully, for a Monarch butterfly chrysalis. The Monarch Monitoring volunteers have registered the garden as a Monarch Waystation so they can help track the Monarchs.
At the Powhatan Activity Center, we weeded the bed and watered the transplants. The New England Aster is just now coming into full bloom, and we found a Yellow-tipped Coral Mushroom among the rip-rap near the building.
Views of the CCC Museum Garden and the Rain Garden are included in the slideshow below. I will be out of town for a few days visiting Claytor Lake State Park, but Eric Gray has stepped up to lead the crew for the next Thursday morning session.
