I was certainly glad I did not cut them down because these are what the weeds look like.  They are simply beautiful.  In life, sometimes we do not give things the opportunity to prove themself to us and so we never know.  Wow!  Am I ever glad that I did not cut down the weeds because Bumble Bees and regular Bees and Yellow Jackets have really enjoyed the pollen from the Golden Rod that gets as tall as 10 to 12 feet tall?  Bees and Mold Removal CharlotteI have enjoyed taking numerous photos of the insects who have been feasting on the weeds and I am so glad I kept the wee...
