Colors of Spring


As the pollen drifts downward, coating our cars, homes, and outdoor furniture, tissues are a hot commodity. Allergies are in full bloom. But it is difficult to hold a grudge against Mother Nature, especially when she is busy painting her earthly canvas with the brilliant colors of spring. After a cold, dismal winter, the colors are a welcome sight, assuming you can see through watery, red eyes. If it's too much on your sinuses to get out and walk amongst the flora of the season, put down that box of tissues and scroll through this virtual tour of the blossoms around my place.
