SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. — I designed my garden to attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, specifically Monarchs.

A family in Eastlake is doing the same.

“I went out and bought Milkweed and they just showed up. They have radar for milkweed,” said Airam Marlett, who was inspired by an Instagram post and has had success from day one. “My first year, I had 30 Monarchs, and it’s been wonderful to watch.”
