The goldenrod is yellow
The corn is turning brown
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.
~ Childrens song
Sad thoughts and sunny weather.
Ah me, this glory and this grief
Agree not well together!
~ Thomas Parsons, 1880, A Song For September
(Another beautiful Saturday in the Bogs.)
If you’re in the mood for a little reading, there is a lovely article about goldenrod here, and another discussing its medicinal uses here.
