A Few Wild Flowers & A Whole Lota Ragweed


The weather is beautiful . Warm sun and cool breezes . Miggy and I went for our walk this morning , then it hit me ,  Ragweed  pollen . A A ACHEW !!!!  They say its moderate today but my sinuses are telling me difwent  sorry I mean different ! Itchy watery eyes , ya know the drill !!

Yup it’s that time of year . Now all the wild flowers are lovely but with them comes Ragweed !

The pollen from Ragweed can travel in the winds about 400 miles , in my case its in the field right beside us !

                This is Ragweed . The field is covered in it and  it’s mixed in with all the wild flowers ! !


            Lots of people mistaken Goldenrod as Ragweed  and the culprit to hay fever and allergies  from September to October  !!


                                                                  This above is Goldenrod  !


               It was windy and me being me out in a field filled with Ragweed to take wild flower photos ! Whab a nut ! I mean What a nut !




Above photo is our house across the field ! Full of  pretty Goldenrod , wild flowers and yes Ragweed !


                                     I like how they all grew together . I think it looks pretty !

So needless to say , today I feel like my head and sinuses are going to explode ! A A ACHEW  !

                                    Until next time , hope you have an allergy free day !

Thankfully, ragweed is not rampant around here, except in the fields and none is near our home. My biggest problem now is mosquitoes which are out in force and attacking when i do yard word. Hope you feel better soon, bless you.

Thankfully I don't suffer from allergies , if I did I would do like you and still wander amongst the wildflowers.
I love the pictures of all the different colored wildflowers, just so beautiful.
