I woke up yesterday morning to a sinus headache and puffy eyes. Thought to myself ugh, can’t wait for these seasonal allergies to be over with.
Made my way to the kitchen for my usual “Good morning, WAKE UP Dt. DP” passing by the window when this caught my eye.
No, I’m not talking about the heavy dew and the nice steam coming of the pond. Look a little closer…
Yep, if you live in my neck of the woods you know what I’m talkin’ about.
The dreaded Cottonwood Tree.
Looks a bit like a light snow for Oklahoma, in late May!
It’s the time of year that this lovely tree pollinates. They are like dreaded 40 feet weeds. They grow unwilling anywhere and EVERYWHERE!
I had the kiddos fooled for a bit about another snow day. Then I was bombarded with a zillion questions about this fabulous “snow” tree as we have now dubbed it!
But, this time of year also brings me lots of this from my garden.
And pretties like these to fill my vases.
Excuse me now as I need to run to my local pharmacy and get me some more allergy meds. Cross your fingers that I have not reached my purchasing limit for the month. Those dang meth lab people have really messed the access to my Cotton Wood “fix it” pill all up!
