~Waiting for Wings~
I've been trying for years to successfully grow milkweed to hopefully attract a Monarch or two. But I've had no luck.
I watch their migration from Mexico every spring. So this year I took a different approach & have the plant in a pot to keep a better eye on it. I've carefully watered & moved the plant around so it gets just the right amount of sun. This was the year that seems I've finally succeeded! So I was more than excited today that the time it took me to go pick Austin up from school & home-the seed pods just burst open! What a sight to see-the feather light seeds-gently blowing in the breeze-
1st I grabbed my camera-than a baggie to collect the seeds before they all blew away!
Hope you all have a very safe Holiday weekend~
