yellow flowers

Every year at this time, many yellow flowers bloom along the road from my home to my workplace.
My father died in May of 15 years ago, but since this flower was blooming a lot even when preparing for a funeral, when I look at this flower every year, I remember my gentle father.

By the way, this flower is called  “Kinkeigiku” golden chrysanthemum.
This flower is an alien species, is very fertile and harmful to native plants, so it seems that it is selected as “worst of invasive alien species in Japan 100″.
It is certainly an awesome reproductive power, and it is blooming everywhere along the way this time.
It is my favorite flower that reminds me of my father, so it makes me feel a little complicated.
