Many of us have been complaining about really bad allergies lately, and yet we're not seeing much more than crocuses blooming so far. So do you want to know what's making your life hell right now?
A friend suggested to me a number of years back that maybe it was stuff like maple trees I was having allergic reactions to this early in the spring. I'm thinking they were on to something. There's other trees in bloom right now, so we can't blame JUST the maples. I know both the red maple AND the pussy willows in my back yard are in bloom, even though there isn't a leaf to be seen on them yet!
