I love spring! I love the green-ness of everything.  All the plants have new shiny leaves that aren't worn out and tired looking like they get in August.  I love the bright blue of the sky in the spring.  I even love the dripping of the water off of everything during a spring rain shower. 

There is one thing, however, I do not like about spring.  ALLERGIES! Me and tree pollen do not play well together.  Those little pollen grains get in my nose and cause my head to feel like it's going to explode.  My nose drips, my eyes itch.  It's just not fun!  But, that being said, I refuse to stay inside when it's pretty outside.  There is simply too much to enjoy to sit inside.  So I dutifully spray my nose and take my pill and revel in spring.  I love to open the windows and let that freshly mown grass smell in the house.  Out with the stale woodstove smell, in with the wonderfully fragrant smell of grass and flowers. 

I guess I'm really pretty lucky, my allergies don't bother me year round, just a few weeks in the spring and then again in the fall.  They also don't bother me enough to force me to give up my favorite season. Soon the honeysuckle will be filling up my backyard with wonderful fragrance and I'm planning to be laying out in the hammock daydreaming and breathing deeply!
