so my profile says I live in Sunapee NH but I also have a home in Groton MA. I have 4 plants in my yard and I found 9 eggs tonight. Woo Woo.
I checked several spots in Sunapee this weekend and still nothing.
Will keep everyone up to date

Heading to Sunpee today so I'll check the big patch at the circle.

All three we have found are at different stages. The first one is now probably about half grown. The second one just needs to plump out a bit and he will be ready to hang. The third one had just hatched and is so tiny I can barely tell it is a monarch caterpillar. I saw the tiny hole it made eating, which is how I found it. So all three had to be laid at different times which means there have been a few monarchs around out there!

One of the butterflies that I brought back from Maine looks like it will probably emerge from it's Chrysalis tomorrow.
