Today we had crazy blasting 60 mph winds from the Southeast all day--I wonder if this monarch got a massive tailwind to arrive so early? He/she looked a bit worn from the flight. Spring is so late this year, I hope it finds enough nectar. I have just hung out many baskets of petunias, fuchsias, and other flowers at least, and a few wildflowers have started to blooming the past few days. My northern lights magnolia is finally blooming today - have never seen a monarch on it because usually it is so early, but maybe she will find those flowers.
