One reply on “If you plant it, monarch butterflies will come”

  1. I’m on the far north side of Chicago. After a few years, one of my many common milkweed plants flowered for the first time. Monarchs, who had already found my butterfly weed plants in earlier years, fed on these flowers. Sunday I found two monarch caterpillars in my garden. They’ve been eating both species of my milkweed leaves energetically. I hope they will progress to adulthood!
