I stopped counting at 50. I was surprised to see any Monarchs this time of year, but 50! The last sighting here was back around the 12th of September, so the surprise. My bee field still has some Alsike, Purple, White Sweet clovers, some Sow thistle and fewer Bull thistle in bloom. Plenty of available drinking stations for thirsty travelers.
