As of July 1 I began posting my daily photos over at my main blog, A Fresh Perspective.
I found the need to eliminate one blog, and since this one came second, this is the one.
I hope you will choose to join me over at A Fresh Perspective for daily photos, photo challenges,
and some other fun stuff thrown in.

ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/80s, 18-105mm lens
The common milkweed upon which we find our Monarch caterpillars is blooming right now.  The field behind our church is loaded with milkweed blooms and it smells divine.  I wanted to capture a photo of the blooms before they die.  Plus I got a little sun flare in just for fun.  :)

Also just a reminder that this is the last Photo of the Day post on this blog.  Starting tomorrow my POTD's will be posted on my main blog, My Perspective.  I hope you'll join me over there.

Love this capture, Kimberly. You're milkweed is beautiful. I don't think I've seen any around here. We only get Monarchs when they are migrating and they usually skirt around my area.

On second thought... I have been away too long! I've missed a whole month. ;(

Nice shot, I'm familiar with milkweed when the fall when the pods burst but I'm not sure I would recognize it in bloom.
