BST?

Monarch, run out of milkweed space, checking out roses

If these are eggs, every stem is loaded with them, milkweed shortage alert!

Non Butterfly:
Blue dragon

black winged dragon

Have a great week everyone!!

Those are aphids on your milkweed are not eggs. If you look close at them you will see they have legs and move.

Thank you for pointing that out, the white ones I agree, I have never seen yellow aphids. I usually use soap and water and hose them away. But want to be sure if those yellow material are eggs or not eggs??
