CINDY'S SNAPSHOT: Monarch butterflies in Auburndale, N.S.

You can tell that Marjorie Zwicker spends lots of quality time in her lovely garden? The payoff is twofold: lovely flowers and Monarch butterflies. The milkweed in her garden in Auburndale, N.S. is a popular spot for these beauties, at least it was. The photo was taken last July. Marjorie says that despite having more milkweed in her garden than ever before, she has had no Monarchs gracing it with their lovely visits.  Despite watering, the flowers have already dried off the milkweed. Marjorie is wondering if the blooms faded early because of the intense heat.
