Milkweed flowers and seeds

Wishing everyone a beautiful day! Planting and watching things grow is all part of the journey this time of year. Milkweed is a plant that I found out about when I injured my knee some years ago. A friend told me of a place that made a healing balm that helps with pain and helps restore mobility. It is full of antioxidants and packed with omega 3 and omega 7 fatty acids, magnesium, zinc and calcium helping to fight pain and inflammation. This is where you can purchase this balm and seeds if you wish. https://milkweedbalm.com

Milkweed is the sole food for Monarch butterflies. So when planting this beautiful plant you are helping the butterflies migrate to and from Mexico or California.

I have found that this plant, this balm has been very helpful as I have grown older and have some aches and pains. It has also helped to heal my knee.

Last year I decided to grow some in my container garden. I didn’t know how well they would do in Arizona. This year they all came back and are even stronger than last year. The flowers are so very beautiful.

I am thinking of painting this bucket yellow one day. It needs a little makeover. 🙂

This last container has had a slower go of it. It might need a little more sun. It’s at the other end of the garden by some trees. But still very beautiful . I am going to be adding some compost and helping everyone along their way.

I love this plant and everything about it. It brings me joy everytime I look at it’s bright orange flowers.

That’s it for today. 🙂

Love and peace to all! ❤

Flower blessings! ❤
