Just a quick little update on Little Miss Monarch. Things are going well. I had said before that I hadn't seen her in the act of sipping from the orange slices, but this morning I caught her at it.
She flutters about the room and most of the time she is on the window sill, looking out, no doubt wanting to be out there on her way to her destination. If the Weather.com weather report is accurate, we'll be releasing her tomorrow. We're to have several warm days in a row - hopefully enough to get her far enough south to miss the returning colder weather.
I don't like those nighttime temperatures, but I'm sure she'll find a protected tree or shrub to roost for the night, then continue on when it warms enough during the day for her to fly.
Don't worry - there are some actual gardening posts coming up. This is a gardening blog after all. LOL.
