I happened to be outside during lunch and asked her to please leave the milkweed in one wild corner where it grows. I told her I look for eggs and caterpillars on the plants. She said "caterpillars? yuck!" So I explained that they will grow to be big beautiful monarch butterflies. She left the milkweed alone! It's not a huge patch, but I always find eggs on them, usually the first ones of the season, even years when monarchs aren't that abundant in the area. The next week there were eggs there! I'm so happy for "my" little patch!
