You're welcome. It gave me a little lift this morning. The Monarchs have such a difficult time that it does a soul good to see something positive about them.

Hurray! Such great news, Tee! Big Grin An article appeared in our local paper this morning. Talking about the migration, the problems persisting for these beauties, and recommending that we plant native milkweed for them. They even gave a couple of local nurseries a plug for carrying the natives. Thumbs up
