City people are just clueless. I get it.
In the past 48 hours I saw two monarch butterflies here. Two separate ones, in different gardens a mile from each other. This generated discussion amoung several of us, DH taking the point of view that I was wrong, it was a moth (!) on the first sighting. By the second sighting he was ready to agree that I knew what I was talking about. My friend who is into pollinator gardens offered the opinion that they might have over wintered or come back early, hard to know. These are old butterflies, their powder is worn. We will put our orange slices for them since there isn't much nector around at this time of year.
Monarchs here in the first part of April is unusual.
