I took a walk in the pasture this evening. Nelson, our neighbor, had just cut it. I wanted to take a photo of this swamp milkweed. I think it is from seed given to me by my friend, Lesa. It was almost two years ago that I tossed hundreds of seeds in overgrown areas of the pasture and so far I’ve found three milkweed plants.
This honey locust is growing in the same area as the milkweed. I wouldn’t want this near the house with those wicked thorns.
