Spotted a monarch butterfly on my milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) on Sunday. Hubby said "you sure it's not one of those impersonators?" Nope, not a viceroy, totally a monarch - and I planted those butterfly weeds just for them. I'm hoping to spot some caterpillars and cocoons soon!!
The only bad thing is only 4 of the umpteen roots I put in last fall grew into anything this spring. Horrible, horrible cold winter!!
