Ciel morne d'automne
Graine d’espoir / Hope’s seed
Asclepias syriaca: asclépiade / milkweed
(iPhone 6, iPhone camera app, 2014-11-01)
Hope's seedCette mauvaise herbe, connue sous le nom commun de “petit cochon” et parfois haït, est pourtant une plante extraordinaire qui mérite d’être préservée: non seulement elle constitue l’alimentation favorite du superbe papillon Monarque, elle produit une sève laiteuse qui contient du latex mais sa fibre soyeuse peut aussi être utilisé pour fabriquer du tissu (commercialisé sous l’appellation de “Monark”).

This weed, known by the common name of “milkweed” and sometimes hated, is however an extraordinary plant that deserves to be preserved: not only it is the favourite food of the beautiful monarch butterfly, it produces a milky sap that contains latex but its silky fiber can also be used to make cloth (sold under the brand name of “Monark”).
