I don’t know how long I’ve had this aloe–long enough to have repotted several times in successively roomier pots.
This is the first time it’s bloomed.
After the stripping the milkweed plant bare, the Monarch caterpillars settle down for a nap. This one chose the milkweed pot itself.
The milkweeds themselves are amazing. The caterpillars pick them bare–when they have eaten all the leaves, they start start eating the stems–and leaves come right back to feed the next brood.
And this was just a few of the two-wheeled hazards we saw on the two mile trip to the grocery store. There were others in that same parking lot, as well as some left in the middle of a sidewalk in front of the local thrift store.
