When I first looked at plants did not see any eggs. Was there for an hour. About 19 minutes before I was going to go saw Monarch going by plants, but this time she did lay eggs. I bought a plant that had an egg. Other folks were coming and buying milkweed plants. I was not sure if they also were looking for eggs or a healthier full plant. The sad part us that when I was loading my truck with tons if dill, fennel, and parsley, plus two milkweed plants, The SAD thing was that I found the Monarch that laid the eggs dying on the pebbles. I fid pick her up and have her little body. Tons of Folks at VA Beach are doing the same thing I do according to staff. They keep buying the milkweed, parsley, and dill to feed the larvaeā€™s and give the eggs at chance at life.
