Milkweed is in Bloom!

Milkweed is one of Miz Flora’s favorite summer flowers. We weren’t sure why, because squirrels can’t eat it, but when she cajoled Hickory and I into a ‘run’ with her we had time to dawdle. These flowers are absolutely covered with bugs!

I did a bit of my research and learned you humans have found 457 different kinds of insects visit the Common Milkweed. Some are feeding on the flowers, the leaves, the stems and the roots. But some are just visiting, like we sit in trees that don’t have acorns.
