Found a beautiful Curtiss' Milkweed on the land next to our house today. Asclepias curtissii is endangered so we are very happy to have it growing there. It is also endemic, meaning it only grows in Florida. I will keep an eye on it to see if any monarch or queen butterflies are living there!

We had our yearly frost last night and it left these beautiful patterns on the palmetto fronds. It would be interesting to investigate why this happens. Why this pattern? I enjoyed the view for a few brief minutes in the morning before the sun worked its magic.
