The long days of summer are almost over, and next week in the UK many kids will be returning to schools, but while the sun still shines we will have the beauty of butterflies with us for a little longer keeping the image of summer alive for many. The monarch butterfly, must surely rank as one of the most wonderful as it flits from flower to flower. Whilst not a UK native species, if you happen to be state side or somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic you are in for a treat this time of year.
