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.┬áIt’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%!
