Milkweed and friend

Another stage in the milkweed saga is reached with the formation of fresh green pods which have attracted a visitor other than myself!   Less than a month ago it was the butterflies who loved that milkweed when it was in full bloom.  And way back in March we knew these milkweed when they were still potential


  1. I haven't seen any of these. Fall seems to be early this year. The Maples have been changing for a couple of weeks. Nothing drastic, but the change has begun.

  2. B2, I agree that fall seems early and I guess it is in fact. Apple were picked last week at Corey Lake Orchards two weeks ahead of normal. And the leaves on the trees down here look plain tired, less green, more brown.
