I’ve seen milkweed pods but never the blossoms until my friend Betty invited me into her back yard to see the Monarch butterfly caterpillars feasting on the leaves of the milkweed she planted for that very purpose. I’m crazy about the blossoms and got some of her seed to launch my own hatchery. Yes, I got photos of the caterpillars which I’ll publish another day. Don’t want to detract attention from these beautiful and unique blooms today.
