The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is for this week is to represent the word Awakening. The first photo that sprung to mind is the eruption of milkweed in my monarch habitat garden in the spring. Usually, the itch gets too much to bear and forces me to go looking for this sign of spring. It is also the signal that my beloved Monarchs will (hopefully) soon follow. I say hopefully because their arrival has gotten later and later each year!
