A Late Return

I honestly did not think that I was going to see any monarchs this year. Then one day a few weeks ago, I saw the monarch on the butterfly bush. I went out to my milkweed plants and could not find a single egg.

Yesterday, I saw another monarch in my butterfly garden bopping from one milkweed plant to another. When I peeked at my milkweed plants, I found around 40 eggs! I am concerned about how late in the season it is. I am not sure if my milkweed will stay around long enough to feed these little ones, so let’s hope it does!

(If you are new to blog, I have been releasing monarchs for the past few years. You can check out some of the older posts here)
