  1. I. Love. This. Plant. You have been its cheerleader for a few years now, and I finally got some plants this year. Next year, I’m trying to start seeds, and I’m hoping there will even be some re-seeding. Hail, Tithonia!

  2. Just got a notification from Monarch Watch that roosting has been observed up north! Migration has begun! The photo is gorgeous!

  3. A beautiful photo … Well done Judy/Jason … It should be used to promote Monarch butterflies in gardening magazines.

  4. I know it is deep summer when you show variations on this subject. I always look forward to seeing this scene. I just wish it was in my garden. I don’t know why I don’t get some seed and grow these gorgeous flowers. NEXT year I will certainly do it. Superb photo.

  5. My favorite annual for Monarchs and so easy to grow from seed too. Thanks for the gorgeous photo!
