Goldenrod, a Bee, and a Spider

The goldenrod is blooming and it’s lovely. I can hardly stop sneezing when I’m near it, but a long lens really helps a lot. Although to be fair, nothing entirely stops the sneezing, the gritty eyes, and the hoarse voice. They come with the territory of pollen.

Whoever said “allergies don’t make you sick” never had allergies.

  1. Mine are gone already – cut them back this afternoon….. some look at them as ‘weeds’ but most weeds are just flowers with the wrong name (except dandelions and thistles, growing wildly in my garden!!!) and I always leave them grow for the bees, insects and beatles.


      1. Rhodos shouldn’t be blooming now…. Mine, a big one with red flowers died within about 2 weeks this summer…. It was planted under a huge Linden tree which must have sucked up all the water and left nothing to its roots….


  2. My golden rod are also flowring, but for the last time. They are actually now forbidden according to our gardener and classified as weed. Mine are a remainder of some seeds from another plant, and I really no longer want them.
