The Joy of Spring 

One of the joys of spring in Iowa is the sight of our native milkweed seeds emerging from the pod that protected them
all winter.

The wind will catch these shining silken threads soon and lift them up into the sky where they will carry their seeds away, coming to rest, hopefully,
in a welcoming place,
nourished by a gardener who cherishes
the old fashioned lavender blooms
and the monarchs who will
feed and breed beneath them.
