Monarch Waystations

If you plant it, they will come!

 The Monarchs are here and they love the bright colors of zinnias and sunflowers as they float through the gardens of Kentucky, but they also  need their only host plant, Milkweed, to lay their eggs on.  Fall is ideal for planting and now many garden centers are offering discounts on their inventory.  If you have an existing butterfly garden, you may only need to plant Milkweed to be complete and certify your garden through Monarchwatch.org, a non-profit group at the University of Kansas that tracks the migration and habitat of this declining beauty.  You, too, can have a Monarch Waystation with a good plan and desire to help.

Happy Butterflying!
