ABC Wednesday Round 5 G is for....
Goldenrod is the feathery like flower that starts it's bloom around the Labor Day weekend. It is a pretty flower. I don't know if it has a scent or not. I never get that close.
I remember Goldenrod because for years it signified the time of my son's most horrible allergy attacks. He would be miserable for weeks or until the first frost. The Goldenrod was the instigator in these attacks. Without the Goldenrod he could have enjoyed his autumn.
I remember the days and nights with him being miserable. Hooking up the nebulizer to help him breath. If after too many days of that not being sufficient, the doctor would prescribe an oral steroid to help ease his breathing. I remember the red eyes.
My son did get allergy shots. I am glad to say that he is now free of this horrendous discomfort. But I can not look at Goldenrod and see it's beauty, all I see is a miserable feeling son.
