I have not yet seen a monarch, but her highness has been here and been busy. I found 56 eggs this afternoon, May 15, same date as first eggs last year. They were laid on common, swamp, poke and Sullivant’s milkweeds. Another report of first adult was made today on Journey North from Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. These are the first reports in Wisconsin so far and the farthest north so far reported anywhere. I am at 43 degrees north, 88 degrees west. Temperature 71 F today and yesterday.
