MsDonald’s Garden Center. Saw two smaller Monarch flying on the outside fence that were lined with lantana plants. Fenced in open aur area had 4 types if milkweed plants they were selling. The tropical milkweed plants had been cut back and were regrowing. Did have a few leaves on them so I bought the plants that had the eggs on them. This was the only type that eggs were on. I did not buy plants that were infected with yellow little bugs. There was another type milkweed and it had ants which I kept hitting since the plant looked healthy. Two big Monarch were chasing each other in and out if herb large rectangular window and bldg. another monarch was flying around milkweed plants. They were selling Monarch larvae inside in clear plastic condiment containers. They had tropical leave clippings but no damp paper for a little moisture. They each cost $ 2.98. I bought 4 in the 2 instar stage almost 3rd stage. Got plants in garden, gave them water and all larvae were put on a different plant. I will check on them all today and report back later. Only place in town that has and sells milkweed. Big Monarch Manner when you come into the center near registers.
