Ragweed deadheads

After a hard frost and winter rains knock down the grasses and succulent weeds, what is left is those with a woody stem. the pervasive ragweed stands as sentinels in the fields just to remind one that while winter quells the allergies, they’re waiting for a Springtime rebirth.
It was so different to me when I moved to South Carolina. A high pollen count in Vermont might be between 70 and 100; I never was bothered with hay fever. Here the pollen count numbers are7X what I was used to having. It’s Certizine all season long.

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
