Monarch butterflies

The monarchs are in every flower bed we have.

The past few years of drought though, both up here and all the way down to mexico, have really raised hell on their population. there are not nearly as many as before.
the dry conditions have hampered the milkweed and the past wild fire from way down south in texas:
neither bodes well for getting them up north.

we have a pretty good mix of butterfly garden plants, but i think we will be adding milkweed to the mix.

for myself, the monarchs are a definite sign that high summer is gone and the hot days are in decline.
