I have needed these five weeks to complete my milkweed exploration. However, I suspect I will be finishing just in time to catch the early and late spring part of the milkweed story, since I didn't start this project until June 23rd last year. Fear not, my plan is to give the blog a milkweed break until I discover all that I hope to see and learn this April, May and June.
Actually, when I made the photos for Counting on the Woods, I had to find five nests. That was in 1997. It is now 2014. I still look for nests. What can I say. Will I ever learn to quit doing it?
