If you plant it, they will come

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!!
