October makes the time of the year when docent start hanging out at the Pacific Grove Monarch Sanctuary. I had been checking almost everyday for two weeks and had only seen two monarch and they were just flying through, not nectaring. So when i signed up for a 12 to 3 shift for Sat., i was not expecting to be seeing monarchs but knew we would have people because i was talking to them whenever i went there because people were looking for the monarchs.
What a surprise to find two on the bottle brush tree when i got there. The most I saw at one time was four. But enough flew through that all the 282 people i talked to got to see at least one. Lets hope it's only the beginning. And you will see lots more monarchs over the next several months.
