When digging up my geranium bedding plants,there was an adult monarch between the leaves. i thought it might not survive in the wind (nearly 30 mph)and brought it inside as it clung to a leaf. I used some of the hummingbird sugar water for the butterfly to drink, and placed the butterfly among the plants that I overwinter in my greenhouse. I expected it to die overnight, but this afternoon there it was enjoying one of the flowers. The wind was just as strong as yesterday so I decided not to take her outside, and instead let her enjoy the indoor greenhouse plants.
