Saw a monarch today, earlier than last year. 3 Tiger Swallowtails out today, and in the last couple days have had Am. Painted Lady, Red Admiral, Red spotted purple, Silver spotted skipper, little skippers whatever they are, Black Swallowtail, a blue, and a whole bunch of cabbages.
It's good it was just a delay and not a population crash. When my butterfly bushes start blooming it will be a circus out there.
