The milkweed is starting to bloom. The plant attracts the Monarch butterfly. The caterpillars are easier to photograph because they move slower.
I can’t look at these without thinking of my mother. She gave me some and in my yard, they grow like weeds. She didn’t like it when I pulled them out of my hostas. I do let them grow but I try to keep them under control.
I grow these or maybe I should say they grow themselves in my Yard. I associate them with the start of Summer because they tend to start blooming around the middle of June. There are so many things blooming right now that you might start to notice a theme on my photo blog. 🙂
Dressed up for the grand opening of Rice Park – a must have for every Instagramer.
We really appreciate Spring in Minnesota. We have had a cold wet spring this year but it is still beautiful.
I love the colors of the new leaves in the spring. It is almost fluorescent and only lasts for a week or two.
