Plant It and They Will Come: A Success Story!

I was enjoying a warm Tuesday afternoon.  Ogling the size of my birdhouse gourds and fretting over the lack of flowers near the pumpkin patch when something orange caught my eye.  A monarch butterfly soared over the fence and into my little garden.  It darted past the cosmos, over the Indian blanket flowers, lingered around the Queen Anne's lace, past the native mallow and buckwheat and then . . . over the other fence and into my neighbor's yard.

What the heck?  I've planted four - no five - patches of milkweed this year.  Granted, the plants in two of those patches are pretty small.  Meager pickings but still!?  I was sure that my neighbor didn't have much more to offer.  Or her neighbor.
