Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus)

Yesterday, the September 8, I have seen a monarch butterfly in my backyard for the first time since the dramatic decline in the monarch population in 2013.
I planted Milkweed and nectar-producing plants to help the monarch butterfly.
I invite you to create a monarch oasis in your backyard.
