Normally the milkweed pods would open and the wind would take the fluff & seeds away. With all of the rain the fluff just droops and hangs onto the pod.
When you are some distance from a group of milkweeds, especially in foggy and dismal conditions (pretty much all of the time) they look like fairy ghosts.
Not the seasonal changes I hope for in the fall but I guess if it stays this way until Halloween it can still be considered seasonal.
