Monarch Egg (FIRST sighted)

Date: 05/23/2007

Number: 1

I saw a female Monarch arrive in my milkweed garden at 1 PM and she began laying eggs almost immediately. Bright white eggs on new and delicious young milkweed.Since I am a retired 1st grade teacher who taught her 1st lesson on Monarchs in 1984,I gathered 20 eggs for 2 classrooms and my upcoming class in the local Nature Center. This is early for Ct,I usually don't find Monarchs in the garden until the Milkweed blooms.It is always exciting when the first Monarch arrives.
