Backyard Autumn Nature
The Monarch butterflies are still here. This one was looking for a late afternoon meal in my wildflower garden. It is really late for them to be migrating to Mexico. Last night it got close to freezing so the Monarch butterflies are not going to be able to survive much longer. Was there an extra late brood of Monarch butterflies this year, that don’t know to migrate. There really isn’t any milkweed left, so I don’t know if they can still lay eggs so the caterpillars will find milkweed next spring. I’m glad there are still a few flowers in my garden, but they aren’t going to last much longer.
