Late Arrival…


Yesterday marks the first time I’ve seen a monarch in our backyard in November–and December begins today!

On November 30, yesterday, I happened to see a monarch float into our backyard. During the previous 10 years no monarchs had been sighted in the yard later than October 16. Yes, I keep track. Very unscientific, I know, but something is going on with the weather. There’s been a warm wind the past week–today is supposed to be the last day before temps drop a little. It’s summer here and the flowers are having a final show for the year. We really need rain. But for now a late arriving monarch will do.
