Just a short little update with what's been going on around here. The mild Santa Ana conditions we've been experiencing following that wonderful bit of rain we received recently has brought back some old friends to the container garden. Several Monarchs are cruising about looking tattered and worn, but not worn out. As for Monarch caterpillars, there haven't been any spotted for two weeks now.
Several Cloudless Sulphurs have been visiting the cassia also. That's about all I've seen recently butterfly-wise.

Winter Cassia or Christmas Senna, Cassia bicapsularis
Oh, yes; a Painted Lady butterfly has also made an appearance, happily feeding on the remaining milkweed flowers!
