Learning about Goldenrod

We were on vacation and everywhere we saw this yellow flower, the goldenrod.  This was right along the Canadian/US border.  Yep, right at Niagara Falls.  We observed this yellow flower as we drove along our route on vacation.  By the time we got home we had one growing by our pool outside so I just couldn't cut it down.  

We've gone outside and looked at the plant as time goes by.  The yellow flower is dying but still interesting.  

Although we didn't do a notebooking page we have our pictures that will be added to our nature journal and enjoyed because we will remember our wonderful vacation.  We will also remember the hunting for this particular plant.  My boys now can identify this plant whenever we see it on the side of the road.  All from searching from it and taking a close up look at it.
