Yesterday, this monarch stayed in my backyard all afternoon. I wish I could have caught her on video, but I was lucky to catch this still shot. My nectar plants are in bloom now so the butterflies have lots of options- buddeleia, penta, milkweed,a variety of salvias, and more. I’m including another pic of her on milkweed. So far, no eggs… maybe tomorrow.
Take your garden to another level with butterfly gardening. Check out my article “It’s All A Flutter in the Garden” for more information on how to create one in your yard.
