I have one little patch of goldenrod in front of my house, right next to the driveway. I protect it from pickup trucks and lawn mowers all summer long just so I can watch the bumble bees flock to it in late summer.
This year is no exception. The bumble bees are crazy for a daily fix of its nectar. And when the wind blows, the bees go for a wild ride as the goldenrod whips back and forth like a schooner in a storm.
