Welcome! Maggie,

Could you help out here, by giving a location? What part of the country, or world are you in?

I agree, it appears to be Milkweed. We have many in the database with photos for comparison: http://garden.org/plants/searc... but I wonder if it might be Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)
Great photos here for comparison too: http://natureofmymemories.blog...
