Is it that time already?





Winter still has bits of remains here and there, 
but already the pollen is flying. 
At least in my area. 
I have already gotten pollen alerts that the trees are starting their dating rituals. I could feel it before the allergy alerts arrived in my email box!
 Yup, it is that time. (achoo!)


 
Good old Maxine from Crabby Road Hallmark©
 always knows the score.


Are you ready for the sneezing, sniffling, red itchy eyes season?
The good thing that comes with it, is spring weather, buds and blossoms. (yea!)

Also linking up this week with Frozen Moments  and A Nut in a Nutshell .

  1. No I'm not ready for all the allergies. Not one bit, but I'm oh so tired of the cold. Sigh!

    Have a terrific WW. :)

  3. My kids are already sneezing out their brains, so I figure we should just jump in head first and get on with the nice weather. Around our house the weather is so back and forth it's driving me insane (it snowed yesterday, rained last night and is supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow)!

  7. Ugh, imagine scenes at the daycare and kindergarten where kids don't cover their mouths when they sneeze... *shivers*

  8. Oh my gosh that's perfect! I guess we are in the middle of the two. Flu is slowly giving way to allergy. Cough, cough, sneeze, sneeze!

  9. I am dealing with BOTH right now.
    I hate the North...

  12. Fall is my worst - I can sail thru spring and summer.

  13. I'm not allergic, but allergies must not be much fun, especially after waiting so long for the winter to finally go away. One day they'll hopefully have much better treatments for those that suffer.

  14. fortunately I don't have seasonal allergies. Unfortunately, I still have asthma.

  15. 20 years ago the poison oak patch was just a couple feet across. It's spread about that much each year and now entwines 40 feet along the fence line. It's red leaf tips are showing and made me think about how much pollen might potentially blow our way :]

    ReplyDelete
  16. i love maxine!
    and yep, the pollen is EVERYWHERE

    ReplyDelete
  17. Isn't that the truth? Things are not blooming here yet.....but so soon!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  19. Unfortunately that's true - and sometimes they overlap!!!

  22. It's my husband who has to suffer every year at this time. You would think there is a cure for this by now.

    ReplyDelete

  27. I must admit, if I had my pick I'd rather have allergies and spring! I'm so over the cold temps!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, so not ready for the allergies! It has rained here this week though so we got a break!

    ReplyDelete
  29. No, I'm not ready! My son takes claritin year round for allergies while the rest of us just suffer lo. I did get a box of goodies yesterday to review though so we'll see how they do!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Maxine forgot about "cold" as that's what I have right now.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Don't come to visit us, Darling, because we live in a tropical petrie dish. You'd be one big sneeze all year round. We feel for you!

    ReplyDelete

  36. I'm lucky we never get Hay fever here.. as it's summer all year round in Asia.... hope that the allergies don't bother you too much this year.

    ReplyDelete

    Thankfully I don't have any allergies, and hopefully it will stay that way. I love all the beautiful smells and fragrances that nature provides in spring...

  64. hilarious but sadly very true.

    i always had horrible pollen, dust, mold allergies but after moving to thailand (from the US) a few years ago, i haven't ***knock on wood*** really had anymore allergy problems. a friend of mine studying medicine in the states told me that most countries either have allergy issues or parasite issues. certain climates are just... more prone to have one or the other. unfortunately, thailand is a parasite climate rather than an allergy climate. i think i'd rather have the allergies...

  65. I hate hayfever but I have a good long break before it all comes around again...
