Butterfly milkweed

     The butterfly milkweed is in full bloom in the garden.


      My husband was not a plant person, but he liked butterfly milkweed. It is eaten by monarch caterpillars, which reminded him of The Venture Bros. villain, The Monarch, whom he loved.
     The monarchs and, subsequently, their caterpillars, will be here soon. When they arrive, I will take pictures and tally caterpillars and share the news.

This post is for my husband, who died this month.
I love you, babe. I can feel your presence in the garden.
