Wild Toronto: Goldenrod vs. Ragweed

Wild Toronto is a bi-weekly comic strip about the animals and plants that make a living in our city. Rosemary Mosco makes the comics, and would love to hear your suggestions (in the comments!) on wildlife to be profiled.

    Go ragweed!
    heh heh

    You’ll need to let your loyal public know if you’ll release a book of these some day (or already have). I love them! :)

  • scientz

    I don’t care who does it, I’m still allergic to both.
    Ragweed is pretty suspicious, though.

  • ambrose

    I love learning from these things.

  • Rosemary Mosco

    I haven’t made a little book yet, but I’m planning on it! I’ll let you guys know when it’s done.

  • David Newland

    Cripes, finally! I have been waiting for years for someone to come to goldenrod’s defense.
    Maybe sometime you’ll discuss the ailanthus, aka “tree of heaven” and it’s less-than-heavenly smell… a unique signifier of Toronto even if it’s an invader.

    With the beaches open, perhaps we can get some marine life editions. You know, if there’s anything still living in the lake.

    Rosemary – I’d love to talk to you about the comics. Great way to teach kids about nature.
