Not much, I admit…
(Sharing those links below).
In any case, I’ll try to promote the idea by sharing here how this past summer, I let the milkweed roam & grow where they liked.
Did I mention their scent is lovely? Well, it really is. -> Next year, take a snootful and see (smell) for yourself what I mean.
But, I came to my senses and resisted… then scolded myself in the process.
Our personal enjoyment yes, but also to encourage and help the other beings on this planet thrive, be they insects, birds, or mammals.
At the end of the season I was duly rewarded with plenty of seeds pods that burst forth in a spectacular fashion! Truly, they are nature’s understated fireworks.
So, I collected many seed pods and dried them in order to scatter those seeds all around our property next spring.
Here’s hoping it helps our winged friends, even a little bit, and that many of them will visit me next year.
Just some thoughts on a snowy winter day. 🙂
