Hay fever

May has been spectacular. Just the right combination of rain and sunshine has made this a Spring to remember. The garden is fragrant with wisteria, honeysuckle and roses. The cherries are ripe and juicy. A far cry from the wet, cold and windy month of May that Paris has endured.

The down side has been the bumper crop of pollen. Residents and tourists alike have their share of red eyes and sneezes. We need another night-time thunderstorm.

just discovered your diary and found it interesting, particularly the nature comments. There is a certain time difference with things appearing slightly earlier a few km west where I live which i had not noticed when I have driven into Cahors. I missed all that snow and enjoyed your pictures but it probably snowed here too but I was away at the time and missed it.
Glad I dont have to put up with hay fever

If you are having a reaction to the pollens in the air, eat the local honey! A friend of mine in Texas put me on to this. Seems that if you take in the honey made from bees that eat the pollens that make you sneeze, you will build up a bit of an immunity to them. Anyway, it is worth a try, don't you think. Not just any old honey, must be local.
