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

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.
