    in eastern Massachusetts it's been at least fifteen years since we've seen a monarch.  Have a hard time believing agriculture and glyphosate are responsible, there being close to none of either here.  Friends along the coast say the great southward migration of monarchs they had every fall has just about vanished.

    I do keep a patch of milkweed going in my back yard in the hope that some monarch(s) will err by and find them.  And there's some on waysides and in parkland nearby.  But no monarchs anymore.
