Milkweed, but no monarchs yet.

The bad news is that the 2013 monarch migration map posted on the website Journey North shows only one monarch sighting in all of Illinois. That report is of monarch eggs on a milkweed plant in Chicago. The map is usually loaded with dots representing sightings across Illinois at this time of year. The temperature is also unusual today. The high will be in the 50s.

My milkweed waits for the monarchs.
