Coming or going? By Crystal | August 24, 2014 Butterfly weed’s bright orange blossoms are so striking, though in our garden this flower seems to be more enticing to bees than butterflies. Every year it starts forming seed pods before I think it should. The orange has been replaced by 35 seed pods (and counting). But we got a surprise this week: a few new buds opened up alongside the seed pods. Summer isn’t quite over yet.
