Scott Frost Day News: Mullets, Exploding Turkeys and a Husker Triple Double

I really like watching Monarch butterflies. For years in the fall, I anxiously awaited the butterfly migration, camera in hand, to get pictures of them and watch them flutter around gracefully. We have a lot of trees on our ranch and going for a run along the road was like running in a butterfly cloud one or two days a year.

I have even grown milkweed for the butterflies. It started with my garden. Admittedly, I’ve let the milkweed get out of hand and it makes real gardening difficult in places. Now, I’ve gotten a small area (about an acre) that has enough milkweed established that I can be aggressive in keeping it out of the garden.
