Anyone else in a pollen storm? And what's-in-bloom

Ugh, the cars are covered in yellow.

I ridemowed for the first time this season, and I'm feeling it. Is it possible to just have pollen-allergy-asthma, or would that just be called asthma? Or a pollen allergy-cough-wheeze, lol?

In any case, my sympathies to anyone else caught in this dry land with a sea of pollen.

It tries to tarnish the blooms of spring... now displaying Crabapple Louisa, Double Weeping Cherry, Magnolia 'Jane', Russian Almond, Hand-me-down spirea, Fragrant white akebia vine and numerous azaleas and camelias in my yard.

And of course forsythia and perennials ;]

I suppose trees need lovin' too, bwahaha.

Forgot the Carolina jessamine! Can't forget the bright yellow with all the pinks and white, jeez. She's supposed to rebloom in the fall this year, so we'll see.

Yes you can have seasonal induced asthma. I know I have it and depending on the year I may have to use an inhaler, but usually I know the signs and how to control.

Here we are covered in elm and oak pollen which do cause allergies. We also have pine pollen but the allergists swear these don't cause problems. :\ And yes lots of yellow cars, driveways and roads awash in white as the Bradford blooms finish. Happy Spring, now where is our rain to wash this all away....

Thank you; I may have to ask the doc about an inhaler when it's this bad.

Charlotte had insane pollen levels, they've been saying on the news. Something like 500 is very bad, and we had over 7000!

No idea what ours is other than I have seen very high, but then again I don't normally watch the local news. I guess if we don't get rain anytime soon the yellow will become red from all the clay dust.
