ABC Wednesday - Yellow Goldenrod



Y is for Yellow Goldenrod.............



yellow goldenrod wild flower in the summer




This is the most common variety of Goldenrod that we have in our area.

It is a wildflower that blooms from mid to late summer and is blamed for many of the summer allergies that cause much suffering.

I always thought they were a delicate, pretty flower - especially looking out over a field covered with them.

This herb is considered to be a weed by many, but the few I have growing around my home are most welcome to be here.

  1. Outstanding shot of the goldenrod... I'll have to keep my eyes open because I'm not sure if it grows in my area or not.

  4. Nice shot. I like how the goldenrod forms a thin band around the branch.

  8. They are pretty, Kathy, but I've been allergic to Goldenrod since I was a child! So I'll vouch for their power to create seasonal sneezes and more...

    Your photo brings out this plant's beauty, though!
