At London Bridge Garden Center and green house saw 16 monarch larvas on plants near Lantana huge 9 foot by 10 foot planted against she bldg on grounds. Told staff if I could purchase the plants on which larvas were and she said, “ I could have them free.” And the moment I had to go do tons of errands and did get back at 4:55 p.m. Staff told me I could nit purchase anything since they were closing in 5 min. I did also see a Monarch butterfly which we think was a male. Hus picture was different than one I released that morning which I will document in a separate entry. They also had 35 black swallow tail larvas in the 1st to 3rd instar stages by this Lantana plant. I did not see any babies on of any butterflies on any type of plant since the use a spray type rod wen they water plants.
