Today's Flowers - March 13

Common Milkweed
Asclepias Syriaca


A plant with a 'common' name has uncommonly beautiful, and fragrant, flowers. I took this photo in July, 2010, at the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center, located about 20 miles southwest of Lincoln, Nebraska.

Today's Flowers is a weekly Meme created by Luiz Santilli, Jr. and currently hosted by Luiz Santilli, Jr., Denise in Virginia, Laerte Pupo and Sandy Carlson. I invite you to visit Today's Flowers to see lovely flowers from all around the world. If you have a flower photo of your own to share, information about how to participate in the weekly meme may be found on the 'Procedure' page.

I had no idea the milkweed flower was so beautiful. Wonderful shot. I think that is the Monarch's flower of choice.

Hi Pat,

Wow! What a beautiful flower shot. That gives me hope that before we know it spring will really be here.

Thanks for stopping by ... you caught me before I was all done; you might like my ME post even better now. You are right about life being a chair of bowlies, especially last week.

Have a great week!

Beautiful photo! I love milkweed because it is so attractive and attracts so many different pollinators, like the fly in your photo.
