Monarch UpdatePosted: August 26, 2015
Good news from Monarch Watch. The number of Monarch Butterfly sightings and egg count have increased. It is not as high as in the past, but the population has grown this year. Monarch Watch is asking that Milkweed be planted in the migration corridor from Minnesota through Texas for the fall migration to Mexico.
Although it may be too late to plant, unless a full grown plant can be found, plan ahead for the Monarchs’ journey north next spring.
I had a some visiting butterflies in the spring and spotted a few caterpillars. My Tropical Milkweed (Asclepias curassavica) is ready and waiting.
