  1. Huzzah!!! Are these from the seeds I sent?

  2. Sooooo jealous!!!! Maybe we’ll be next. The milkweed (three different varieties, all from your yard) have taken off this year), but no sign of eggs or caterpillars.

  3. Oh, how lovely! I have milkweed in the yarden for the first time this year — am hopeful.

  4. congratulations 🙂

  5. Alas, Penny, I think I murdered your seeds. Nothing came up, and I wonder if failed to water them enough for our arid clime…but I still think of every time I look at our milkweed, the slender pods bursting… 🙂

    Both my parents AND my husband surprised me (and each other) with the gift of milkweed plants on our wedding anniversary in May. We’re a mini-milkweed farm now!

  6. Nice!

    Sorry the ones I sent were a flop – but I love the story of the milkweed plant gift extravaganza!

    Ah, well, at least the acorn caps worked out!

    It’s all good!
