There's a small patch of milkweed at the Friends of West Davis Pond garden, and it's just starting to bloom this week.  In the Midwest, where I come from, milkweed is all over the place, and it's the plant the monarch butterfly lays its eggs on.  You don't see it out here though, so I asked one of the gardners if it was native here or if they had just brought it in.  He said it is native.  We do have monarchs out here, although I don't think they migrate like the Great Lakes monarchs do.  I saw one lone monarch flying around here last month, but I haven't seen any caterpillars yet.
