The wildflowers are out.
Goldenrod is one of the most distinctive wildflowers of late summer here in upstate New York. It is a native wildflower, and a member of the aster family. Contrary to common belief, it does not aggravate hay fever, as its pollen is generally not distributed by wind.
I am told its young shoots are edible. I've not tried them.
In Germany, it is considered an invasive plant.
some cultivated varieties, but you need a lot of space - even "dwarfs" grow to some eight feet (2.43m) tall.
As time permits, I'll publish more photos of my walk later this month.
Nature is all around us, even in urban areas.
