Fall colors at the bay

Mobile Bay, Alabama

Goldenrod used to the the state flower of Alabama, but it was replaced by camellia in the 1960s. Too bad, in my opinion, as camellia was an import from Asia whereas as goldenrod is native. It gets a bad reputation with allergy sufferers because it hangs out with ragweed.
