Monarch Butterfly in Alberta

Solitary – being alone; without others. As in, “I’m going out to the garden to do some weeding. Who wants to come out and help me?”

I only found one Monarch Butterfly in my garden this year, and it is the only Monarch I’ve ever seen in my part of the world.

Ideas don’t stay in some minds very long because they don’t like solitary confinement.
