"Monarch of the Community Garden"
Amongst the Zinnia's in the community garden on 15th Ave, a Monarch butterfly floats on updrafts and alights on each flower, gently. Much like the native Bumble Bee, the Monarch Butterfly is endangered due to lack of food and lack of plants to lay its eggs on. Many people in Powderhorn have begun planting butterfly gardens. Please consider doing so if you haven't already; and don't forget to plant the milkweed--it is the only plant that the Monarch lays her eggs on (or at least don't pull any of them out of your yards).
