Wonderful Spring, Cursed Pollen

Joyous spring!  One day, trees blossomed.  Two days later, green tips and buds appeared.  At most 2 days after that, those trees are full of green leaves.  Wonderful!

And so begins allergy season, not so wonderful.  If I could just retrain my immune system to correctly identify pollen as a noncombatant, life would be grand.  But the immune system is determined to annihilate the invader and General Histamine is a scorched earth, destroy the village to save it kind of guy.

However, without pollen, no trees and grass.  Something wonderful often comes at a price.

Not sure I’ve completely convinced myself to be philosophical, but I’m trying.  And even on a cloudy day, it sure is pretty.IMG_0823 IMG_0824 IMG_0826 IMG_0827 IMG_0828
