Sightings report image

Date: 05/03/2018

Here in Newfoundland, in northern New Jersey, after two days of temperatures in the mid 80's, Thursday 5-3-18 first Asclepias syriaca (Common Milkweed) began poking through the ground in my home garden this morning. By Saturday 5-5-18 even more Common Milkweed coming up and the Ascepias incarnata (Swamp Milkweed) also began to break through the soil. No signs of Monarchs yet as the temperatures turned cool again, back to the 50's with a chilly rain this past weekend. With 70's forecast this week beginning 5-7-18 now waiting for Monarchs.
