The Monarchs are still attracted to the Blue Mist flowers and filling up on what nectar is left to endure the flight on the northern breezes,heading south to Mexico. The first Cold spell of Fall 2012 and the weather is becoming colder and wetter. I spent the day trimming and moving my plants to safety and hoping they survive the winter months in the house! I keep them in the sunniest south window with diffused sunshine since most live in the shade to protect them from the hot Texas sun. All plants prefer to be outside in the fresh air and sunshine but keep the inside air filtered while overwintering in the house. I move them back out as soon as possible, usually Easter holiday is perfect timing!
