    I find that 8am number pretty cool! I've had some emerge, but once we had to delay dinner to watch one emerge ~ a room full of awestruck adults too! Then I had one emerge right at lunch time so I had an entire kindergarten and 1st grade classes late to the cafeteria! Priorities, you know!

    I got to thinking.....
    My data about the 8 AM butterfly emergence comes from the University of Minnesota, and I live in Minnesota. So perhaps that is the reason my data agrees with their data.

    Since you live in a different time zone, that could easily affect a lot of timing in the world of the Monarch.

    You have given me something to think about.
    Thank you for my next research project.

    No answers as to which is the boy Monarch and which is the girl Monarch from Post #27?

    The answer is also in the thread, if you look! :0)

    Thank you for ordering milkweed seed, and planning to grow them.
    We can all help the Monarch butterfly to return in numbers.

    The only place that I have heard of the White Monarch is Hawaii, so you are very fortunate to have one where you live. That is very, very cool.
    And you are right! It was my mistake. We don't have white monarchs. We have white swallowtails! Oh, well. We do have the milkweed. Maybe if I grow them we'll get monarchs. We've had unusual weather the last few years which might attract them.

    Does anyone else absolutely love the scent of milkweed flower? My favorite two are peony and milkweed, both so very similar

    I raise both peony and milkweed, and I have never noticed that both have a similar scent.
    How fascinating.
    Of course, I have 7 different peonies, and each one smells different from another, and my peonies bloom very early in the Spring, and my milkweed blooms very early in the Fall, so perhaps I have never really compared them.

    You are giving me so many new things to check out, Rosa.
    Thank you so much for your input!!!

    There were two Monarchs and 8 Painted Ladies in the flowers today.
    Usually the butterflies are gone by now, but this has been a warm fall, and the weather people are predicting warmer than average temperatures the rest of the week.
