      Aw, Janet, thanks for the morning smile! So glad you could visit my garden.

  1. I clicked on your link to your January post about the overwintering Monarchs in Orange County. Is that a shift from before or do they always come there? I seem to remember that Pacific Grove (near Monterey) was the place they overwintered, at least a few years ago when I was there.

      They DO overwinter in larger numbers in Pacific Grove and along the central/northern coast. But fairly recently (sorry, I can’t remember the exact timeframe, but within the past 10 years), they discovered Monarch clusters hanging from eucalyptus trees in local parks. I wonder if that might be due to the fact that we’ve established Monarch-friendly habitats here…

      Yes, I hadn’t really thought of it that way, but maybe that’s it! We’re wired to nurture and protect.
