LaGuardia Corner Gardens
Hundreds of Monarchs feeding on the Asclepia we planted for them. a beautiful sunny day and the butterflies stayed all day feeding. I first noticed about noon and all activity continued throughout the afternoon. The next day it rained so they were gone. A few stragglers are coming by but nothing like the peak.

I wasn't looking for painted ladies but do see a few around. There was nothing like the cloud of Monarchs to distract even NYC tourists. We have a community garden that occupies a half of a city block in the middle of Greenwich Village. I have never in 30 years of gardening seen this many Monarchs here.
Milkweed, Titonia, Zinnias & Buddleai
We're fully occupied.
