On Milkweed and Summertime

It is finally here.
What a welcome time of the year. I have, for the past 5 years, been trying to plant milkweed in my back yard in an attempt to attract monarch butterflies, which feed exclusively on that plant. I have transplanted the actual plant, the name it. What a surprise it was when I discovered 4 plants that poked their heads up thru the dirt. I had totally given up on the possibility!
Funny how that try and try and then let go....THAT IS WHEN THE MAGIC HAPPENS!
