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)

Has anyone seen a public statement from Ald. Sposato or Napolitano about this? I know I saw a picture of them at the game.
What do people think of this?

I need a bunch of small repairs done on my house that no contractor is interested in.
The small back porch needs to be replaced and my garage door opener is messed up.
Anyone in the neighborhood do small jobs for people? I'm close to Irving Park and Laramie.
