My 2021 attempt at Monarch Guardianship has begun

I’ve seen very few Monarch butterflies so far this year, and each time I have it’s only been one at a time in the yard.  Today, I finally found some eggs.  Four eggs are now in their respective containers, and only time will tell how many more eggs I may find this year.

Four repurposed yogurt containers, each has one milkweed leaf with a Monarch egg per leaf.
I sure hope this year is more fruitful than last year.

Last year, the first successful egg search yielded nine.  Since last year ended up being very dismal, with more not surviving than did–I really hope this year goes better.

Care to share thoughts on this?
