The Last Monarch

Monarch on gomphrenas--photo copyright Anne Underwood EnslowDeli on Washington Street--photo copyright Anne Underwood EnslowI thought the great migration of monarch butterflies from the Northeast to Mexico had ended. It had been weeks since I’d seen a monarch in my garden. But today I spotted this straggler on the main street of Hoboken, sampling the nectar of some flowers outside a deli. These purple gomphrenas are apparently a butterfly delicacy. Note to self: Plant some next year!
