The beautiful flower in the post below, a bush that appeared as a stalk in my yard a few months ago, is a milkweed! In fact, it's the ones that monarch butterflies feed on... I feel like I won the lottery! So I bet if I can keep it alive for a year, I'll have some larvae next spring. My neighbor about a block away had some this spring (pictured below). I've also done quite a bit of gardening this weekend, including adding a lavender pincushion next to the sunflowers. Looks quite a lot like the white one I saw in Joshua Tree earlier this year.
