It’s Spring here at the moment. Or as I like to call it, hay fever season.
I am not sure what it is that sets me off the worst… wattle has been out for a while (and evident in paddocks throughout our entire trip from Central Queensland to southern NSW and back).
Perhaps it’s the bottlebrush? Out in abundance in the past two weeks – this tree sits at our side gate. (Can you see how dry it looks in the background? You may have noticed this in yesterdays emu photos also?)
And if the pollen isn’t agreeing with this resident, the local native and European bees ADORE it!
The whole tree is BUZZING with both varieties of bee…
I have to admit, even if I am allergic to these blooms, I probably wouldn’t remove the trees. That’s why God invented antihistamine, isn’t it?
I just hope it rains here soon – to lay the dust and the pollen (and brighten my green backgrounds)!
Yours in weeping scratchiness.
