Common milkweed saves the day

A search this afternoon for a different topic pulled up this post.  I was able to share my (abundant) common milkweed with a friend, so she could feed the leaves to her monarch caterpillars.

It was nice to re-read today -- and reminded me, too, of online friendships now in-person ones.  A wonderful offshoot of the digital age.

Looking again for that post brought up all sorts of other milkweed posts, too, including one the following year, where I shared more milkweed with her again.  We had a HUGE patch in what used to be the meadow up front by the time we left our garden in Upstate South Carolina.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
