i took these several days ago when i noticed that the first pod had begun to form.

my other favorite weed, queen anne's lace is blossoming, and the beautiful blue cornflowers are also blooming. the two together make a beautiful native bouquet.

did you know that milkweed is the only plant that monarch butterfly larva eat?
so, if you want monarchs please stop ripping out your milkweed.

Oh some Queen Anne's Lace please.
Not a weed here.
I had it years ago and it did self sow but the drought has changed a lot of self sown things.
I love Borage. Love to toss the flowers around a salad. But have not got that any more either.
