My photo muse is the garden

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Muse.”

The vegetable garden inspires me to pull out my iPhone and take a few pics to record its ever changing landscape. Two shots taken earlier today show wild milkweed that I have allowed to flourish behind the main garden. Why? to nourish and attract monarch butterflies, a threatened species. In the centre of the shot to the right you can see a sorrel plant. Besides being a perennial, one of those lovely plants that just appear in the spring, sorrel is a cross between a herb and a salad green. The leaves have a tangy lemony flavour, providing an accent to salads, soups, pestos, salad dressings, sauces and so on.

Here is another milkweed photo showing the newly formed pink bud clusters:
