Aaron's Rod

Agrimony or Aaron's Rod is in flower now all over Filnore Woods.

The spikes of small, five-petalled, starry flowers seem to climb higher and higher as the spike lengthens.

I'm never quite sure how to pronounce its name.  Do you put the stress on the first syllable so it's AG-rimony, or on the second syllable so it would be a-GRIM-ony.  

So I use its other name of  'Aaron's Rod'.  (You can see what Aaron, Moses' brother, got up to with his rod in Exodus chapter 7, verses 10-13.)  

I also like the older names of 'Fairy's Rod' or 'Fairy's Wand'.
