I didn't raise any cats this spring & I have only seen a few queen cats on my milkweeds until this week. I found a dozen late instar monarch cats & have brought them all in to protect!
It's about time!!!

I had found a monarch chrysalis on the Ellen's Blue butterfly bush before my trip, so I checked it out yesterday. This morning, it had turned dark -
