We've seen butterflies (several at a time) for the past couple of weeks. Just yesterday we noticed many more had arrived and that they are attracted to the loquat tree in our yard. Throughout the day I've observed well over 50 butterflies on the tree and flying in our garden. So beautiful!

Editor's Note: The butterflies are Queens, a close relative of the monarch.
