Don’t get me wrong. I love Spring. Spring is the most beautiful season of all. Birds sing louder and more often, because the heavens open, showers the earth and brings worms galore closer to the surface. 🙂 Sometimes it rains more often than we’d like, but that’s April and where would we be without gentle rains to wash away the pollen?
Our cars change overnight to a shade we don’t recognize. I emptied the vacuum cleaner filter, threw away the bag tinged with greenish-yellow pollen. In and out the house and leaving the door open until I can get my mom from the door to car, brought tons of pollen inside. Thank goodness for air cleaners!
A friend shipped one gorgeous white Iris bulb from North Carolina a few years ago. Now, there are probably more than fifty bulbs protruding from the small flower bed. The more I give away, the more they spread. I should sell them, but it’s much nicer to see a sweet smile on the face of an Iris bulb receiver.
Before the rain, I snapped this beautiful Iris in my yard. There’s a hint of lavendar on this perfect shaped flower.
During a short shower I snapped the photo below of my Muscadine Grape vine. I hope you can see the sparkling rain drops. The vine is still on my deck in the pot! I haven’t had time to plant, but hope to get it into the ground in the next day or so. The skin is tougher on a Muscadine than a regular grape, but if you’ve never eaten one the flavor will knock your socks off. 🙂 My mom used them to make jelly and jam. Wow, what a delicious spread for a hot buttered biscuit.
So…my sinus problem will go away. For now, the flowers make up for the pollen explosion we all shared.
I wish you many happy blooms and veggies from your garden.
