Just thought I would pass along what we are seeing here. There are probably around 100 a minute going by that I can see. No telling how many more that I can't see.

This spring I made sure I had plenty of milkweed for the CATS. I have
alot in pots so that I can take them off the MW planted in the garden
before the wasps, etc can get them. It is so discouraging - I really miss seeing them.
Has anybody heard anything about the Monarch population being less this year than
in past years? Is anybody else out there in Fl experiencing the same thing I am?
I have also noticed that there are fewer of the other species of butterflies
visiting my garden this year than in other years.
