This week, August 28th, the seed pods of Common Milkweed are fully formed.   Be sure to check out our Nature Notes highlighting what is happening in the garden- which plants are flowering, when new seeds and fruits appear, all of the new growth and change in our garden.

The pollinator garden is a home for bumblebees, monarch butterflies, hummingbirds and a variety of other species that help to pollinate flowering plants and fruit trees in our neighborhood.  Read more about the importance of pollinators here.
