Lots of butterflies, but no monarchs yet. We usually have tons of them. We need to plant some host plants for them.

    If you get seeds from your tithonia, may I have some?

    Beautiful Flutter-byes!
    Plant some milkweed for Monarchs. I need to transplant some into my yard!

    Great (of course) photos! I’m so glad that I’ve been able to ressurect some of my asclepias tuberosa. I want to find and plant another bunch.
