Photo of the Day: Milkweed Flowers

A favorite of Monarch butterflies. I used to pull these out of my herb garden. I think I’ll let the milkweed grow next year, for the butterflies. It’s the only food that the larvae Monarchs can eat, so they’re pretty important to have around, especially since Monarchs are having a rough time of it, the population down by 90%!
