Walking around the yard I took a few pictures of the lovely Milkweed..The smell when it is blooming is wonderful..The Monarch butterfly likes this weed and many times children find it in caterpillar form, put it in a jar, feed it and watch it change into the pupa stage and from there to the beautiful butterfly..It is such an interesting thing to watch..Next, I caught the female cardinal looking at me from the pines..Hard to see, but if you look closely you will see her. Last, but not least, a lone Black-Eyed Susan just starting to open..You know, there is so much we miss in life..
because we are too busy..This year, I am really trying to see all the things in my yard, things I just took for granted..Much of this would be called weeds..but look at that milkweed..a weed? I think not..and the Monarch doesn't think so either...
Till next time, keep looking up..
