    I haven’t had a single monarch sighting this year so far. I saw in one of the previous posts that you were lucky to spot one. Were there more?
    There’s 4 types of milkweed plants waiting for them and nothing. Truth be told the plants don’t look so well, because there were lawn herbicides being used in the whole neighborhood. That sickened a lot of street trees, bushes and flowers. This stuff seems to travel everywhere in the air.

      The two sightings on my blog have been the only two Monarchs I’ve seen so far in my part of Brooklyn.

      Ugh, sorry to hear about the lawn-fetishists.

      Opps! Sorry, I’ve only posted one Monarch so far here this year. BUT yesterday I saw another, my second of the year, and she was depositing eggs. So they are coming… and is the post about this egg-laying specimen.
