Everything around here is covered in yucky, green, sticky pollen.  The temperature has been great, but we can’t enjoy the fresh air through the windows because of the invading yellow dust.

This too shall pass.

It’s only because of these:

Bright red tulips

Blue Chinese Wisteria

Wild violets

Vinca minor

Carolina Jessamine

Crimson Queen Japanese Maple

I love the form of the branches!

Fort Hill creeping phlox

River Birch bark

that this is (barely) tolerable:


 Thank goodness for all of the spring flowers.
