Goldenrod and Silo

Goldenrod

Right now many fields and meadows in south-central Ontario are a sunny yellow, covered in goldenrod.

 Silo, goldenrod and fence

Not to worry, hay fever sufferers: Goldenrod is NOT ragweed, the weed with pollen that makes you (and me) feel so uncomfortable this time of year.

Ragweed has GREEN flowers

Pretty shots of the Goldenrod and the fence. I have recently developed allergies I never had before, it is weird. Have a happy day!

Andy said...

They are everywhere and add a beautiful golden sight to the fields.

Margaret Adamson said...

Is this a crop that the farmers grow, if so for what? It is very bright and beautiful

Christine said...

Oh I love that shot of the fence and silo surrounded by goldenrod!

Great photos. 2 plants I don't think we have here in Australia. The Goldenrod is very cheerful :-)

Tanya Breese said...

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I'm glad that you set me straight as I was about to start sneezing.

Giga said...

We also now a lot of goldenrod. I like such a sunny view of the fields. Regards.

Gayle said...

Aaah, a solo silo. I haven't found any lately. Nice photos. achew!

I have given up the notion of trying to disabuse people that it isn't goldenrod that people are allergic to. I have also noticed that the goldenrod is already past its best date.

Ragweed, how one little plant can make people and animals suffer so much!!

Sandra said...

I love goldenrod and this is beautiful. but i can tell you if you bring a big bunch of goldenrod into the house and fill up vases, it will make your husband of one year sick. way back in 1963 I did this and he sneezed his head off, he was allergic to it.

VP said...

I have never seen green flowers until now...

Birdman said...

Yes, we've been invaded with bright yellow too.

Lowell said...

Fields of gold and fields of dreams! Beautiful!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I've been watching, but ours hasn't turned yet. Have a super day and a great weekend!

Andrea Priebe said...

Beautiful, rustic shot with the old crumbling fence. I love goldenrod too and it is so beautiful out in the fields this time of year. I allow it to grow in one of my gardens ... sadly I have some uninvited rag weed out there too ... hmmmm, no wonder my hubby is sneezing :(

Goldenrod is all around West Virginia now, too. The bees and butterflies are loving it!

Sharon Anck said...

That's so funny, my dad used to always think it was the goldenrod that caused him to sneeze.

Linda W. said...

Goldenrods make great transformation on landscape to gleam in golden yellow!

William Kendall said...

Rose said...

EG, I so wish I had the money/time/energy to come visit your world. I so love that second shot. I have sure enjoyed your blog over the years.

RedPat said...

Love the shot with the silo, EG! I've been seeing more and more goldenrod in city gardens lately - it is so lovely!

orvokki said...

Wonderful golden flower.
Beautiful pictures, as well as the previous post, too.

It is beautiful! Our goldenrod hasn't started blooming yet.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Beautiful photos. I especially love the one with the silo.

Ida said...

The golden rod is such a lovely shade of yellow and oh my your fence scene with the silo is is so pretty.

Michelle said...

Goldenrod does get a bad rap this time of year. Ragweed is something that gives my whole household trouble.

Kay said...

These are day-brightening shots (sans ragweed). Great composition and cool fence in the second shot. It looks as if some plant is ready to take over the silo.

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous Goldenrod image.

LV said...

What an awesome sight of the field of gold. You did a super job on capturing so many details.

Janice Adcock said...

excellent captures

Halcyon said...

The goldenrod here is also in full bloom. I hadn't thought about the ragweed, but that's probably why my nose has been extra-leaky lately. :S

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

Although Goldenrod grows quite happily in gardens here, it doesn't grow out-of-control in the wild. However much of a nuisance it is to farmers it nevertheless looks very attractive.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

My hubby's hayfever is down this year. We have a ton of goldenrod, too!

Indrani said...

I haven't seen those here. Love the color.

Kathy said...

Like Eileen I had no allergies in younger years but now I'm plagued with some so I think our bodies become more sensitive to these allergens the longer we are around them and the greater the exposure.

NatureFootstep said...

wow. I love taht fence. But I´m not sure it can keep anything inside or outside of it :)

Chris Rohrer said...

Soon I will be completely jealous of you and your fall. You better takes lots of awesome fall photos!!:) Your plant photos are beautiful!
