MonarchJourney North reports today that the monarch butterflies are beginning to leave their wintering ground in Mexico. Here they come!

Read about the migration here.

Our milkweed plants are still in dormancy, here in central Virginia. Milkweed is the only host plant for monarch caterpillars, so if you want to attract the butterflies to your yard, be sure to plant some. ButterflyBushes.com is a good source.
