I read an article that said that the Monarch Butterfly is now considered to be endangered.
An interesting article from The New York Times can be read here.
I also read another well written article from NBC News, you can find that here.
In short, the problem is said to be
climate change, deforestestation, and pesticide use which is killing milkweed,
the plant that monarchs feed on.
The hubs and I drove to two garden centers to purchase some milkweed,
neither had any.
I am going to try to expand my "nursery" to Monarchs as soon as I can.
In these pictures, they are enjoying Lantana...
