Morning inspiration 10.08.13

Behind our property the local golf course has a wild field. It's a lovely place to walk, and daydream. Right now much of the milkweed there has dried and cracked open, it's fluffy white seeds ready to fly.  I love milkweed. It's like a fairy tale plant. It is the sole source of food for Monarch Butterfly larvae and when it goes to seed, it sends wishes out into the world. You can't get much more magical than that.

For those unfamiliar with the plant, here are some extra photos.


  1. Beautiful and fascinating. When I was a child, that, Jack in the Pulpit and the Black Eyed Susans were my favorite magical flowers... and BTW, I had many imaginary (?) friends. :)

  2. I love milkweed too. It is indeed a magical plant! And the dried pods lined with soft downy feathers make great fairy beds! Your photos are lovely.
