Rambling milkweed and honey bee

I love this rambling milkweed that entwines itself throughout a bush that grows on the property line between our neighbor’s house and ours (technically on their properly). The vines are fascinating. The flowers and buds are beautiful. Oddly, the seed pods smell like onion and they produce a milky juice that feels sticky.

Sunday morning I noticed a couple of bees visiting the flower blossoms in the early morning light.

Lovely 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝
