Uncommon Wisdom

The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) American Poet, Lecturer and Essayist

Pictured here are three milkweed plants. Above is the Common Milkweed, to the right is the Poke Milkweed (a.k.a. Tall Milkweed) and below is Butterfly Milkweed (with two Great Spangled Fritillary Butterflies). I've been taking a lot of flower pics lately, so I think that will be the theme for this week!
