Too funny - that cartoon about pollen. And TOO TRUE!!! My water tank needed a good scrubbing yesterday and my horse wanted to help by sticking her nose in and stirring the water. And of course, the shopping bags full of kleenex and allergy meds. Aaahhhchooooo, sniff, sniff, sneeze, sneese. But what's nice about the pollen, my grapes are leafing out, as are the apricots and wild plums and it's so nice to see the trees budding. Probably most important - green in the pasture. Least wanted - emergence of flies and red wasps to liven things up. Yuck!
