Antelope horns survey

So I just did a walk-by survey of the antelope horns in the Meadow. This year I counted 16 milkweeds on our side and two on our neighbor's side–a grand total of 18. Last year, I counted 15 antelope horns in the Meadow. In 2015, I counted eight. Yay! Little by little, we're growing our numbers for the monarchs and other pollinators.

We also have seen an increase in antelope horns on our three acres. Previous owners mowed them down each year and when we moved in 10 years ago there was only 1 or 2. We have always mowed around them and they have multiplied much better than I ever would have expected. There are now dozens on our property and my neighbors! Simple steps sometimes have large impacts!

That's so cool! I wish I'd increase faster. :-)
