1. Gee...

I just noticed this was under Gardening and about butterflies.

From the headline I thought it was about Trump and Putin having a drink together...sorry.

3. I though maybe a couple of the Royals smoked something grown in Florida.

I expected to see a video of their intoxicated behavior.

2. Did you plant that milkweed?

I had thought about planting some when I heard that the Monarchs were in big trouble a few years ago.

4. This kind I did, and I think they are Rose Milkweed not swamp

I have a ton of common milkweed volunteers, I will have to watch those, they are aggressive.


Peace

5. Beautiful!!

Where did you find seeds for Rose Milkweed? Itís very pretty. Iíve never heard of it. It kind of reminds me of the tropical milkweed I have in my flower bed. I also have common with some Monarch eggs and a few caterpillars. I usually bring them in and raise them in a mesh butterfly house. Had almost 40 last summer. Havenít started that yet this summer due to a trip to CO I will be taking. After I get back Iíll bring them in. The later Monarchs will be the migration generation to fly to Mexico to overwinter! Love my beautiful Monarchs!! If I could figure out how to post photos on here from my iPhone, Iíd post some butterfly pics... Thanks for posting your pic!!!

8. I got them from my state arboretum

It is a great organization. Actually got that as a bonus plant in a pot with an aster.

Peace

9. I have not seen a single Monarch this year

I was getting at least a few. The rest of my flower garden has other butterflies all over it. Have only seen a few hummingbirds this year too.
