This summer seems to be a good growing year for milkweed! They may be weeds, but their flowers are pretty and their scent, sweet and heavy, especially in the evening sun, when I took these photos.
Since milkweeds are monarch butterflies food of choice, I leave several plants to grow along with my perennials and such. I’ve never noticed any butterflies on them, but maybe one of these years!
