Still finding small Black Swallowtail cats on Fennel. Still monitoring a 3rd Monarch chrysalis I found in the yard (it's still green). Our yard often "shuts down" this time of year, despite lots of nectar. With the sun low on the horizon, I think it is due to the garden not being in sun much of the day (where in the summer the sun comes straight down on the garden all day long).
