The park manager, Keith Tomlinson, told me today that a Monarch was
seen in their experimental meadow (Monarch Waystation #22) on
Sunday, April 26 around 3 PM. I surveyed today, April 30 and found
that the common milkweeds are up from around 4 inches to a foot. And,
best of all they have eggs on them. No butterflies flying it was cold
and overcast today.
Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, Vienna, Virginia
I'll be starting my butterfly walks there in June at 3 PM (Sundays).
I think it's going to be a good year for Monarchs.
