We’ve had some cool, dreary days but today the sunshine and butterflies returned!
Larkspur,lantana and mistflower
Two years ago we saw migrating Monarchs nectaring on these white flowers. We were so happy to see them again in the same place today! There were at least 300 on these bushes that grow along this creek bed. Mostly they were resting and nectaring as there was a south wind blowing about 20 mph. A cold front is headed this way, in about 4 days, with a north wind to push them on to Mexico where they are migrating for the winter. It’s always amazing to see them in such great numbers.
