Look who's back!

Yesterday I saw the first Monarch Butterflies of the year!  Two yesterday, and one today.

This one was a bit shy, but I got a few pictures.  It's better than last year, when we got NO Monarchs at all.  The year before there were one or two, but I think it's been about 4 years since we had that great summer with a whole flock of them.

They're coming to the Joe Pye Weed, which is one of their favourite flowers.  I have the regular plant and also a half-size one; they like both.
