366 photos- day 20 – Winter

Winter is finally here. The skeletons of the milkweed pods look so beautiful against the snow. I let the milkweed in my garden stay, even though it can make the garden look messy. I’m always hoping that leaving it there will invite a few Monarch butterflies to come and hang out with us. So these beautiful pods open up and spread they’re downy seeds into our yard. It’s nice to know they’re waiting there in the ground, biding their time until spring.
Have a beautiful day.

  1. We have various milkweeds in central Texas, but I’ve never seen any part of one in the snow (it hit 78° here yesterday!).
