Today at lunch I checked the Ashland Community Gardens, Weston Nurseries in Hopkinton, and Queen Isabella Drive marsh and field in Ashland. From these three stops, which were good spots for late season butterflies last year, I was able to find and identify only:
Cabbage Whites 20+
Clouded Sulphur 4
American Copper 1
It was 75 degrees and bright sunshine, optimal butterfly conditions, and it was nice to be out enjoying it.
