    Several days ago on a cold morning, I found a large female Monarch on my garden path, looking somewhat the worse for wear. I took it inside & warmed it with my hands & gave it some sugary water, then put it out on a swan plant in a sunny spot. After a couple of hours it was gone. Then yesterday I found 6 eggs on the plant, so I have them inside to try to raise them. Not sure if they came from the Monarch I helped, or another one. Whichever, the end of August does seem to be a trifle early in Hamilton! However I have seen quite a few Monarchs in our garden & elsewhere over the last week or so.
