Golden Rod

GoldenRod blooms in the Ponderosa Pine Forest.

Just looking at the picture makes you feel an allergic response coming on? Never fear, it’s not the Goldenrod that people are actually allergic to! At the same time that Goldenrod blooms so conspicuously, the Ragweed often found in the same area is the usual culprit.  Ragweed has tiny green flowers that go almost unnoticed, but create huge clouds of very irritating pollen.  So enjoy this golden beauty.

    It looks so much better growing wild than cultivated in an earthenware trough in my garden.
    Thanks for liking my poem.
