Still more monarchs

one of many monarchs nectaring on the large Buddleia
The flow of monarchs continues;  the abundant Buddleia flowers are actively being visited, with the nectar resources shared with Painted Ladies, skippers and other butterflies, and bees of all sorts!


  1. So glad to see this! Thank you for sharing.

  2. I just planted a couple buddleias in my Nothern Illinois yard. They're puny, and about to go dormant for the year as we head into Winter. But I am looking forward to similar activity next Spring!

  3. I just planted a couple of Buddleias in my Northern Illinois yard. They're puny by comparison, and since I snagged the palnts in an end of season sale, I'm not even sure what colors they are (one purports to be dark purple and the other, pink). Still, I have high hopes for them next Spring. Thanks for sharing!


I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
