As I’ve gotten older I’ve notice there are many species of Ragweed. I edited the image to make the plant look more sinister. One of my friends has horrific allergies to many things and Ragweed is one of them. She’s got lots of company in this world.

I’m fortunate that few plants bother me. I remember a few years ago going up to a large patch of Ragweed, getting very close to the flowers with my nose, and although I didn’t sneeze, I could sense a heaviness in the air. Zillions of pollen particles I imagine.
