This golden rod and aster field is just across the road from where I live. It is huge! Many many football fields in size!
The golden rod and New England asters are at peak right now.
Today I saw a number honey bees foraging, but no monarchs, yet!
It was breezy, coming from the NW made it chilly. However, the wind direction was perfect for monarchs heading to Mexico.
I did release one of my native monarchs today - a male on my property and next to plenty of golden rod and asters.
