Wildflower Centerpiece #9

This weeks Wildflower Centerpiece is
“Golden Rod”
This weed flower grows abundantly in fields and roadsides.
It signals Fall is just around the corner in my neck of the woods.
Wouldn’t some cooler temperatures be grand?
Many people blame this flower for their Fall allergies.
But that’s not the case.  The culprit for Fall allergies is the rag weed that is blooming at the same time as the Golden Rod.
I chose to display the flowers in a heavy metal camping cooker.  The kind you can hang over a fire or put right down into the coals.
