We're keeping a very close eye on our Monarch. The amount of time it takes to complete the change depends on the weather, and so we watch.
There are other things to watch in the garden. The hummingbirds are enjoying the cardinal flowers and the trumpet vine. The goldfinches are beginning to feed on the sunflowers so I know the seed is becoming mature.
Ed has been spending so much time keeping the grass mowed that he actually seems to be tired of doing it. Really I think it's just that he has other things he wants to accomplish instead.He still had time to do some weeding . Some more catnip got cut and stripped to dry. A few of the lower leave on some plants had powdery mildew. I think that is a first for catnip.
