Monarch Butterfly Ovipositing

She's having to work around all the freaking aphids!  They were thick this year, and since we don't want to use pesticides they were hard to deal with.  Two rounds of ladybugs didn't help much.  We finally kept after them with the hose for long enough to get them under control.
