AMAZING!!! MONARCH BUTTERFLIES HAVE ALREADY ARRIVED TO CAPE ANN

There are Monarchs on Cape Ann, and they are laying eggs!!! Check your milkweed Friends! This is nearly a month earlier than usual.

Jane Danekis had a female several days ago in her garden on Revere Street and she deposited over 100 eggs on shoots of newly emerging milkweed.

Michele Del Vecchio saw a Monarch at Good Harbor Beach today, too!

Please let us know if you have seen a Monarch recently, and take a snapshot if you can. Thank you 🙂

A Monarch egg is pale golden yellow in color and shaped like a tiny ridged dome. The egg is no larger than a pinhead.

  1. I think I saw some small ones in my yard today. Flitting around the lilacs which are out and tulips which are on their way out. Any tips on who has milkweed to plant? I stupidly collected flower heads last year before the seed pods even formed. Duh! Will be happy to take out some hydrangeas I inherited that never flower and put in the milkweed.
