Something’s Missing

milkweed bloomsThat something is the Monarch butterfly.  All these beautiful Milkweed blooms and no Monarchs.  I have not seen even one this summer.  In past years I have been able to collect eggs and/or caterpillars to watch as they make their amazing transformation.  I hope they’ll be back next year.

An interesting fact about milkweed that I didn’t know is that it is edible.  You can check out some information about that here.  The flowers are wonderfully fragrant as well.
