Fall is finally here and the area milkweed is starting to release its seeds to ensure spring blooms. I love this plant. It produces stunning flowers and just as stunning seed pod openings.
Last Spring I was able to capture some great photos of milkweed blooms. I’ll enjoy seeing if next Spring I can get more but with a unique angle.
Milkweed isn’t only fun to look at. It also provides food for monarch butterflies. I don’t have any milkweed at home so I haven’t been able to use it to attract butterflies and photograph them. Hopefully I can change that next year.
It’s starting to get cooler outside and tomorrow is the official first day of Fall. I’m looking forward to getting out of the heat.
I love when seasons change. It always gives me a feeling of renewed energy creativity and opportunity.
Each season holds its own treasures. In Fall we see beautiful colors in the trees and get to celebrate Thanksgiving. It very well could be my favorite time of year.
It’s starting to feel like Fall
Cool mornings, apples, pears
A few leaves coming down
But not so many that
We forget it’s still Summer
If only for a few more days
