Keepin Cool

Saturday, March 19, 2016

Its been a really nice week. Temps stayed between 70-82 degrees all week. There's been an awesome gentle breeze every day as well. And its been so beautifully sunny, I've already got 5 gladiolas starting to grow!! I just planted those bulbs last week....I'm stoked!

This whole week I've been enjoying the fruits of my labors. All the yard work I did in the weeks past was worth it. My next step will be to re-stain the deck, but I need to wait until all the pollen has finished dusting everything. The pollen is so thick here its literally in small piles at the edges of my driveway. My black car isn't even recognizable and my deck? Well its spotted yellow because every time I spray the hose on my flowers (both sides of my deck), the water pulls in the pollen into little tiny puddles. Then it dries. The result... spotted yellow deck. LOL

Until the pollen finally slows down, all I can really do is sit outside and relax. Most days that's with a tall glass of water, my book and a Banana Twin Pop!

    I live in Naples, Florida & we have the same issues w/the pollen! We had so much rain in January & they say that's why we have so much pollen. It coats everything! And I'm sensitive so I've been sneezing up a storm! Zyrtec usually helps but not this year! So glad you're enjoying the gentle weather! I love Naples for the weather too!

    Yuk....pollen....that keeps me indoors. Achoo!

    They (the forecasters) haven't totally made up their mind yet if we'll be in that one little spot in PA that might get snow.

    I understand most if it comes from the abundance of pine trees, but we also have tons of Bradford Pear trees around us too...so I'm sure its a combination.

    It is nice here too and a lot of my spring flowers have bloomed. We may get some snow showers tomorrow though. I hope not.
