Eggs on common milkweed, two dozen plus cats eating hardy. Milkweed should flower in next week hopefully bringing in more females to nectar and lay eggs. Weather has been warm with chilly nights and rain on and off. I note many nectar plants are slow growing this year except the asters which are tall and thick a bit ahead of schedule. All our habitat nectar plants are now behind metal fencing to protect from deer who are aggressively eating everything they can access.
