I hear you about the pollen, Susie.

Being right next to Smoky Mtn Nat/l Park and numerous state parks, as well numerous state parks and stands & lil forests of decidous trees. . . we have two sessions of allergy-triggering pollen. The worst is later, in the midst of spring, when the yellow pollen covers everything: cars take on a yellowish-green hue - car washes do a bang-up busdiness from newcomers, visitors and the fastidious. . . they soon learn the futility of this as within a few hours, cars are yellow-hued again!! this goes on about 3 weeks. It makes my lungs itch!!

Then there is the milder, shorter early summmer session: the only visible signs THIS time are all the allergy sufferers'!

But then, each of the four seasons here has its own special torment.. . . I love this area. (irony intended) Sighing!

I'm with Suga, we have so much pollen, we literally can sweep it up. I pulled up beside a pine tree one windy day, and there was a heavy cloud, so thick I could barely see. It was unbelievable. I don't recall Spring allergy season being this bad. The pollen index charts are off the chart already, and spring has barely begun. Add to the pollen problem, windy March. It spreads it everywhere. Unless your car is in the garage with the door down all the time, or you wash it everyday/several times a day, it's going to be greenish for quite a while. It's a good thing that my little town has it's own wastewater treatment facility, otherwise, our water bills would be astronomically high, as my DH is one of those fastidious ones. Whistling Here's to rushing spring along. Thumbs up

Yes Debbie is correct (we don't live very far apart!) and the pollen is sooooo bad you CAN literally sweep it up in a pile and pick it up with a dust pan. Everything is covered! You can't even leave the Windows or doors open this time of year because of it. Thumbs down

Wow! That's a lot of pollen! And no way around it. Hopefully the worst of it won't last long.

I'm hoping to be on vacation by the time our Norway's and yews let theirs go, but I may miss our lilac, which look as though they are loaded this year. It's been 4-5 years since we had a good bloom.
