I've been feeling really under the weather lately - sneezing, itchy eyes, haywire sinuses. I think I have found the culprit - these pretty crab apple blossoms. Spring has just arrived in Wyo and all the trees are coming alive, and this is the first to flower in my yard. It is SO pretty, but, I'm afraid, I'm SO allergic to everything pretty this time of year. I think I may just have to wear a respirator to mow the lawn. And forget sitting outside to read Jane Eyre. I'm afraid we'll have to settle for looking out the window.
