11:05 a.m. at the London Bridge Greenhouse and Nursery, in the open back area, I looked at all the healthy just brought tuberosa plants. They also had 30 swamp milkweed plants that were recovering from all the leaves being eaten by Monarch larvaes. Found one egg, 3 larvae at the end of 4th instar. 6 adult size Monarch kept flying all over the outside back plant area. They flew by customers, kept playing tag and chasing each other. If I did not know better one had a wing similar to the Monarch butterfly that almost drowned. Her wing was 99 % straight.
