Milkweed

Believe it or not, this is National Pollinator Week. What will they think of next!?

My Common Milkweed, host plant for the Monarch butterfly, are going gang busters this year. They are hearty and robust with huge flower heads. I gave up trying to cultivate them; now I just let them come up where ever they like. They seem to do better on their own.

Whatever it takes to help the Monarchs.

Thought for the Day: The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity.
