Watch out for milkweeds!

With the owner's permission, I flagged an antelope horns (Asclepias asperula) that is growing on city easement on Cedar Street near the corner of Ninth Street. I know. I know. Call me nuts. But if possible, I'd like to see this milkweed get dodged the next time anyone mows. 

As you can see, I added my own "explanation" of why the orange flag is there. (Milkweeds host monarch and queen caterpillars.) Now if I could just market my little idea, right?

Great idea, now if the city mowers will agree. That last shot is a good one since I need to look for some around here.
