Monarchs About the Garden

September 16, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Monarchs have been few and far between this summer at the Garden, a puzzling phenomena. On recent walks I have spotted a few fluttering about in particular areas of the Garden.  The bright and colorful spread of bloodflower milkweed outside the Landscape Garden is always a sure bet for spotting Monarchs.

The pods of the bloodflower milkweed are opening and releasing their seeds.

This monarch was enjoying the butterfly bushes in the Crescent Garden.
