Yes, spring is officially here and along with it, comes all the pollen in the air and the abundance of 'yellow or green' dust coverings on everything exposed to the outdoor elements. Cars, sidewalks, decks, etc. are covered with pollen given off by the beautiful little buds of the Pine Tree shown above. Out of all the pollens, this is one of the strongest, mainly because you can see it....everywhere.
It's all a part of nature folks! The dormant winter leaves slowly and brings with it the awakening and new birth of life that can be seen through nature around us.
Bradford Pear Trees are one of next to bloom especially in the south. The beautifully shaped trees are adorned by delicate white flowers that gives everyone the hint that spring has really arrived.
Across the northeast, we'll soon to seeing streets lined with the gorgeous cherry blossoms, a favorite photo opportunity for all that visit our nation's capital in the springtime. Cherry blossoms are probably one of our favorites as they are used widely in weddings and christenings in the spring.
And who could resist the gorgeous and colorful forsythia blooms? So short lived and such vibrant colors.
I know some of us must face the allergy season with signs of runny and stuffed noses, itchy eyes and tickling throats. All the blooms will soon be gone and replaced by lush green leaves and we'll soon be sweltering in blazing hot temperatures. So let's try to let Claritin or Zyrtec do it's job so we can enjoy this bountiful color while we can. It's Mother Natures gift to us and it only comes once a year.
Happy Spring Everyone!
