Several hungry Monarchs stopped by my garden today for a bite to eat...er drink, I guess I should say.
They had a several course meal starting with an appetizer of Lantana Camara
Then they moved on to sample the Salvia farinacea
They took a nibble of orange Cosmos,
but didn't stay long enough for me to get a picture.
Then they washed it all down with a big ol' gulp of their favorite, Mexican Milkweed (Asclepias curassavica)
The Monarchs are making their annual migration down to Mexico; and Grapevine, Texas, and thankfully my garden were on their flight path today :-)

Heads up, South Texas, the winged wonders are on their way down. What's on the menu in your garden?
