The Monarchs finally arrived


At long last the Monarchs finally made an appearance. I had just gotten back to the house when I saw one fly across the yard. Crazy me nearly broke a leg trying to get out of the car and into the house to grab a camera. By the time I got back outside there were two of them. They both led me a merry chase around the whole back yard and into the vacant lot behind us. I did manage to get photos of one which I'll be posting soon.

I totally agree with that. There will be no breaking of any body parts before vacation. I've seen a couple more Monarchs since the first ones.

Nope....still NO Monarchs. Maybe we are not close enough to any Monarch flyways or breeding or feeding grounds. emoticon

The reports so far are saying that the numbers were extremely low at the overwintering sites. The Spring that we had didn't help. I feel blessed to have had the one that I did.

The numbers in Mexico over the Winter were at a historic low. That worries me enough by itself. Then the nasty Spring put a double whammy on them. That's why I brought in almost every caterpillar that I found to raise indoors.

Oh and we had a horrible Spring here. Everything was beautiful, all the fruit trees bloomed out, the roses budded and we got a week long hard freeze!
NO fruit, and the roses that did bloom, look like crap.
And now there is no reprieve from the heat. It's been over a 100 for most of the better of 3 weeks now. emoticon
