May 17: Common Milkweed

If you have never observed a milkweed plant up close you really should. The petal curve way back away from the central portions of the flower. And yes, the Monarch butterflies really love these as a host plant. Hopefully, in a few weeks I will be blessed with finding a crysalis and some caterpillars. Keep your fingers crossed.

  1. My milkweed looks very different, more like cotton puffs. It won't bloom for quite a while. Perhaps I do not have milkweed. Hmmm?
