Monarchs Are Welcome

I try to leave as much milkweed growing on the property as I can as an enticement for the monarch butterflies. It seems especially prolific in my blackberry patch. It makes picking the blackberries and mowing between the rows a little difficult, but the end result is worth it.

And the smell of a blooming milkweed flower is heavenly.

One thought on “Monarchs Are Welcome

  1. I have huge swaths of wildflowers on my property for the pollinators. I just leave them where no one can see and be offended by my weeds. “)
