Monarch Butterflies need "Common Milkweed"

For anyone interested in helping restore Monarchs by planting milkweed; not all milkweed offers full life-cycle Monarch support (not all gardeners/naturalists know the distinction). All types of milkweed will attract pollinators/butterflies.
But only Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) supports the full Monarch lifecycle; as the necessary food source for caterpillars of the Monarch butterfly that feast on its leaves.

Never saw the visitor to our garden, but we found its caterpillars! (pic)

    We had two butterflies emerge this morning. One cocoon was over a bowl covered with Saran Wrap. The cocoon juice was pumpkin (Monarch) colored. It was a surprise, and really shouldn’t have been..

Street repavement question

Anyone know what the deal is with 4800 and 4900 block of Warwick street repavement? They had signs up for no parking the 5th-11th. They broke up the street. When I returned home from a trip yesterday, the 13th, I was expecting a new paved street, however it was just how I left it. The signs are the old signs as well, so wondering why it stopped and when it will be finished.

  • You know how the city works. Look how long it took them to finish Cicero. Hopefully it will be done soon.

  • Agnes Groeper Major of Major

    We have suffered the repaving problem for years to get the 2400 and 2700 blocks of N Mango repaved. Would you believe they did 2500 and 2600 which were cement and skipped 2400 and 2700, Whoever repaved Schubert from Central to Austin should be sued, It was a bad job to start with and is already cracking up, We need more housewives in City government to clean up the mess Any volunteers?

    Oriole between Belmont and Forest Preserve Dr. is plain concrete and has lasted for years! Of course, they don't wanna build them all that way. There would be no busy work for the over paid city employees.
