We noticed that many neighbors also took advantage of the mild weather on Sunday, to pick up leaves. Now we are ready for winter!

I’ve always loved the beauty of milkweed pods. Your photo, Meggan, adds a new dimension.. As John Frank says……… Bill Hahn at St. Joseph’s Village next to Ann Arbor, as far south as Kalamazoo, but more to the east and nearer the Wolverine “Big House.” All Blessings to all.
Love the milkweed photo. !! I have planted milkweed in my garden to try to help butterflies.
Thanks, Meggen, for a reminder how beautiful milkweeds’ seeds are.
We remember that the milkweed provides important food for most pollinator insect species, and for some, (I believe, e.g., the Monarch butterfly) the only food their larvae (caterpillars) eat is milkweed seeds. I have read that the increased use of herbicides has resulted in a 90% reduction of the Monarch butterfly population. Lately many gardeners are planting milkweeds to provide food for bees, butterflies, and other important insects.
The times, they are a-changing.
