Sad Little Pound Cake

Yellow Haze

Spring was arrived. I know this not because of these....

The pollen count has been exceptionally heavy this spring.
Yellow Pollen Clouds

Yellow Pollen Clouds

So much pollen that it appears as a yellow haze, little puffs of yellow clouds with every little breeze. Achoo! Sniff, sniff!
