This is my family's fifth year growing a native milkweed garden in our backyard, and each year the milkweed garden grows bigger and bigger. I live with my 85 year old mother in my childhood home and we've owned this home for over 50 years. I have such fond memories of seeing Monarch butterflies around our yard and gardens. It breaks my heart that Monarch's have had such a hard time. I learned this news five years ago and planted native milkweed seeds our entire flower bed that surrounds our back patio. The milkweed is so fragrant and beautiful, and the Monarchs have come to visit every year since we planted our milkweed garden. What a blessing!
