Nature And The City (Pollen)

It seems that every week some tree is sending its seed out for reproduction. Last week the mimosa trees had a turn. They filled the air with a fragance of honey and summer. Already my throat was itching. Then the seeds fell in profusion filling every corner and crevice.

It's like a gathering of dust bunnies only pollen based.

I have only recently developed allergies to pollen. I try to ignore the itchies and scratchies because I enjoy the flowering of spring. So I rinse my eyes and drink lots of water. The pollen can be pretty.
