Move to a state with a high pollen count. I’m seeing green—Everywhere!
Growing up in Florida I thought the pollen was pretty bad with the orange blossoms and pine trees, but that was nothing compared to what it’s like here. The only good thing about the pollen that has overtaken our home is that it gives me an excuse to postpone my spring cleaning. It’s absolutely pointless to try to clean anything right now. The pollen just layers everything.
Mr. C rinsed his truck off, but it was covered again a few hours later.
Mickey Mouse hasn’t had to sweep the back porch in several days because the stirred up pollen just settles back down again.
The kids have had loads of fun drawing pictures on the glass top of the back porch table. The little girls think the the pollen is chalk dust.:)
Even though we take our shoes off before entering the house, we still carry pollen in on our clothes. Buddy’s coat of black hair is covered in it every time he comes in, too. There’s a thin layer throughout the house. It’s been much worse than last year, maybe because we haven’t had any rain lately. I shouldn’t complain too much, though. If it weren’t for the pollen we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the Creator’s handiwork.

I guess we can endure the pollen and reap the blessings of nature. Thankfully we haven’t had any severe allergy outbreaks. I hope all of you are enjoying spring where you live, too! 🙂
