Botanical Sketchbook: Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)

This milkweed grows in our front yard, by our driveway in the summer. I always look for monarch butterfly cocoons but I havenโ€™t seen one yet! Maybe I need more milkweed plants? I wish it would spread but that whole area is surrounded by hostile and rapidly spreading ground elder that I will one day deal with when I donโ€™t have small children (HA)
