The Monarch In My Window
Danaus plexippus is indeed perplexing down here in the tropics. Monarch butterflies are generally migratory, but it seems, as happens with many tourists, that once they get down here, they have a Jimmy Buffett moment and can't be bothered to leave. Too much...

As if Alert Gardeners Didn't Know....
Plants can choose! Well, they choose in more limited ways than we can, because, except for Tillies and orchids, they are stuck in the ground. Not so stuck??  So when a competive plant muscles into their patch, they can choose to deal with the resulting shad...
