Can't tell!

Bushland, TX(Zone 6a)

Whether I've seen 6 monarchs butterflies,or the same monarch for 6 days in a row,because I never see more than one!!!
There very late this year,or they are by-passing Wichita ,Ks this year!!!

I can't tell the Monarch from the imposter but there are not very many seen here this year either. All the farmers have cut down all the milkweed which is it's only food source so go figure!!!! BEV

I'm wondering if that means an early winter???

Nilwood, IL(Zone 5b)

That may be. the farmer's almanac says a very cold and snowy one for us. We spent $2500.00 on propane last yr so Lord knows what it will be this time!!!! I have a sister that lives just up the road from you in Newton and her son or sons live in Wichita. Small world. BEV

Just found this thread.
We have had Monarchs & other butterflies here until just a couple of days ago.

Sure hated to see they are gone for now.

I have had a few more,but not many last weekend,they were fighting over what lantana flowers were left open!
How much further north are you from me here in Wichita?
