April was very cold and snowy. May began with the temperatures in the upper 70's, but the last couple of days it has been in the upper 40's to mid 50's. Today I finally observed one Common Milkweed and several Sand Milkweed at Harrisville State Park along the Lake Huron Shore. They were between 1/2 and 1 1/2 inches tall. Also, the first dandelion flowers were seen which the monarchs usually sip on when they come back. I have yet to see a monarch.
