Given the weather forecast for the next couple of days, there is not much chance that this monarch will be able to travel far. It's going to be stuck here, and it will probably die in the next frost.

Thank you, so much for responding. Well, at least freezing to death is probably a more pleasant demise than death by dog breath. I was (selfishly) sorry to hear that you retired from your Traverse City post. Best Wishes.

I retired but I will still teach some Master Gardener classes and teach a bit (one night a week this fall).
