Here's the last post of three on the topic of milkweed and monarchs... at least til next year...
|The milkweed flowers are rather pretty, I think. |
|Lots of insects are attracted by the bright colors and tasty pollen.|
|Seed pods form along the plant stalks.|
|The seed pods dry, break open, and send the seeds drifting in the wind like dandelion fluff.|
|We've saved some seeds to plant to keep the monarchs returning next year.|
