The Passing Of Orange

The Butterfly Weed, Asclepias tuberosa, has bloomed again. Nice. You can see the first flush's seed pod forming on the top left. Incidentally, I've never seen a butterfly anywhere near this plant.

With the passing of these flowers and the last of the ordinary daylily, there will be no more orange in the garden. We move strictly into the pink, yellow, and blue (wait -scarlet, fuschia, salmon, burgundy, white and magenta) of the late summer and autumn front yard garden. I still have a lily yet to bloom -and I do not recall its color (must hit last year's blog entries).

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
