    I hope that this year more Monarchs will show up in my garden.  Last year, just when I prepared everything for them to build their families, only one appeared.  Sure there were sightings of a few Swallowtail, but not enough for my liking.

    What are you planning to do to increase your butterfly population?

    I hope so to Stella .It was a strange summer without them. I’ve started some butterfly weed  this year in hopes to get more butterflies. Time will tell. I wish it was summer now.

    I’m looking forward to butterfly visits too, ladies.  Last year really was slow around here.  This year I will be sure to have plenty of zinnias and tithonia.  Hopefully that will help!  I didn’t see anything enjoying either of my spots where I have butterfly weed, and I only saw one swallowtail cat on the parsley last year.  That sure seemed odd.
