My HOA planted shrubs outside by unit window. These shrubs have died because there is no irrigation. Milkweed has grown in that area and there were caterpillars feeding on the plants. Florida is on the migration path for Monarchs and the milkweed is their sole food. I came home yesterday and found that someone had pulled the milkweed--hence also destroying the caterpillars. Now I have only dead shrubs and dirt in front of my condo. I wrote a letter to the Board saying that if I had been notified, I would have been able to move the plants to help preserve the caterpillars.I understand that we cannot plant anything outside our units (even though many people have), so the Board can remove the plants. I feel the Board handled this poorly, however. I am just venting because it is so hard for me to fathom that people can be so heartless and uninformed.
