Milkbuds

Purply popcorn balls of buds

Purply popcorn balls of buds

Each bud in these pinkish milkweed clusters looks like a tiny, expectant head just waiting for its first breath of air and its first glimmer of sun (which they have probably gotten by now, since the picture was taken a couple of weeks ago).

Not sure what kind of milkweed (Asclepias) it is; perhaps purple or swamp.
