We were outside when we noticed seven or eight Monarchs on our butterfly bush. Â There were two or three other ones flitting about also. Â It is the first time we have ever noticed so many Monarchs in our back yard at the same time. Â We thinkÂ they are migrating.
Audrey went outside and caught a few to test for OE. Â One of them was sick, so she kept him, but released the healthy one. Â She also roamed the neighbors’ yard to see if she could find anymore.
We are hoping that more Monarchs use our yard for a B&B as they travel south. Â We have been working hard to plant more Monarch friendly plants and, according to Audrey, you can never have too many butterflies.
