Gail, we have milkweed all over our neighborhood, but none in my yard.

It grows everywhere around here. When Nathaniel was little, we used to take walks with our dog at a Milwaukee park near our old house. He would snap off the seed pods there in fall, bring them home, and release them all over the neighborhood. We called him Nathaniel Milkweed.

For a weed, it’s pretty attractive. :)
