"Milkweed Plant"



Interesting story here. These are the plants that have the beginning stage in the development of the Monarch butterfly.
The eggs are deposited on the leaves - they grow into larvae, Beth my wife collects the larvae and places them in a special cage, they eat the leaves and then prepare their cocoon. We have 6 of them. Waiting for them to morph into the Monarch..

This is not a photograph...... It is a piece of art (with one a). Well done.

Very nice shot of the milkweed blossom Preston.

We have a different variety up here, pink blossoms instead of that bright red. Years ago I found a couple of Monarch caterpillars in the field and took them home with a milkweed plant and put them on large jars. They eventually formed chrysalises and then emerged. Somewhere I have pictures of my two kids with a monarch sitting on their finger until its wings were ready for flight and it flew off. Great fun.

The common milkweed isn't nearly as colorful.
