Iowa Gold

goldenrod

As this beautiful plant blossomed and bloomed all summer, I thought it was the dreaded ragweed that is cursing Jim and his allergies. While it may still be a contributing factor, I’m thrilled to know that this lovely flower that grows like a weed all over the part of Iowa where I live is actually Goldenrod. Goes nicely with the state bird, which loves to visit the thistle sock we hang from the pergola over our back deck – the Goldfinch.
