This Massachusetts series began with a photograph from June 27 of the flowers of common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca, and it ends with a closer view from two days later of the same species, plus a visiting moth with pleasantly plumed antennae (which will look sharper if you click the image).

The setting for this last picture from Massachusetts was the nature preserve near the southwestern corner of the state called Bartholomew’s Cobble. This milkweed was growing just a few feet away from the colony of eastern daisy fleabanes you saw in Guest Post 4.

Next time it’s back to Austin, where I’ve been home for two weeks already. (And if I can change the name of the state in a line from an old Paul Simon song: Massachusetts seems like a dream to me now.)
