Wallpaper Description:
I've learned a lot about goldenrod during the past month. I have my daughter in law to thank for that, as she has a large patch of it growing by the side of her house.

Goldenrod is a beautiful plant when in bloom. There are an amazing variety of insects that pollinate it. The photos I took have many interesting ones at work.

Because goldenrod is pollinated by insects, it is Not the plant that causes sneezing, and itchy watery eyes. Another plant; which blooms at the same time, ragweed, is the real culprit. Ragweed is wind pollinated, and spreads it's spores through the air, making many people miserable in the late Summer and early Fall. Because goldenrod is a much brighter and showier plant, it often gets the blame.

PS. There are 100 to 120 species of goldenrod. I just learned that the kind I took photos of is called Canada Goldenrod. Since I live fairly close to the Canadian border, I guess that I shouldn't be surprised. :D

I took several photographs of bees at work. When I realized that this bumblebee was right in the center of a "star" of goldenrod, I just had to upload it! :D

Here are links to all of my goldenrod plant photos:

Beautiful green-yellow combination. Did you know that this plant has medicinal qualities; Use of the flowers approved by German Commission E as a remedy for bladder stones, kidney stones and urinary tract infection. Also, this plant is aster family so if you wish, you can send it to Beautiful Asters group. :D:D
