|Love all your articles, Sharon, but this one is possibly my favorite. |
I have memories of milkweed since my childhood also. I thought they were amazing miracles. The sparkling beauty of the floss, and the softness, and they way they floated weightlessly through the air. I was fascinated by them. I hardly see them anymore, living in the city. It's been a long time since I drove to the country for a walk. I think I shall do that this weekend!
Loved the article. Thanks!

|Good for you, Sandy. |
I hope you have success with your seeds.
Thanks, Nap. I've probably written about 150+ Aunt Bett articles and I keep thinking I'm going to run out of them pretty soon, but every time I glimpse another plant from my childhood, the memories come rushing back and I'm off and running again. Happens every time I take the long way home instead of the interstate.
Of course I'm the one who cheers when the first dandelion of spring blooms in my yard, too.

|Sharon and Nancy I have extra seeds if y'all would like some-package was for 300 seeds, no way am I going to use all of them|

|Sandy, I would be happy to see milkweed in my yard, but I'm afraid my husband is not a fan. Last year I planted wildflower seeds from one of those packets you can buy, and he hated them. Called them weeds! He once told me that if they sold dandelion seeds, I'd better not come home with any! I know the same would hold for milkweed. |

|Thanks, Sandy, but I'm afraid there are an abundance growing here too. |
My neighbors would tar and feather me if I added any more flying seeds to my yard. I think that last mimosa tree I planted too close to the cottonwood was the last straw.
