330/365: for next year's butterflies

This is a milkweed seed. If all goes well for it, next year it will be a milkweed plant and host a monarch butterfly's eggs.

 

I'm grateful for the cycle of life. Even as the plants are dying, their seeds are scattered in preparation for next year. It gives me hope.
