Mama Monarch left me some presents in my milkweed patch this week and I am currently watching 10 1st instars in my basement.
But it may be a light year for me as far as participating here on the forum as I have so many other things to focus on as well. My wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in March and the past few months have been a whirlwind for me. Cruising the milkweed patch is like a nice timeout for the soul, and - last year, the critters were like little children for her, so I hope it will help calm her this year.
Good luck in the effort, everyone
