I have had a lot of yellow swallowtails, but have not seen any monarchs yet, think the rain is keeping them away

I'm trying to wrack my brain (always difficult for madame hazel )...but I can only recall one Monarch so far this year... However, since I can't remember how early we began seeing them last year, I don't know if that's normal or not... my senior moments have become senior hours....

Beautiful butterfly, chico! Looks so nice against the coneflowers.

Sorry ladies they are all in QUEENSville. Seen quite a few this year. We have a lot of Milkweed growing out back, maybe that's why

Nice Echinea Chico, my Pink ones haven't opened yet. My white ones are looking good, and the other day I bought an Orange one. I've been after one for a couple of years and lucked out and bought one for half price $10. Sorry to err and go again. :sad:
