How to get out of spring cleaning:

Move to a state with a high pollen count. I'm seeing green--Everywhere!

Growing up in Florida I thought the pollen was pretty bad with the orange blossoms and pine trees, but that was nothing compared to what it's like here. The only good thing about the pollen that has overtaken our home is that it gives me an excuse to postpone my spring cleaning. It's absolutely pointless to try to clean anything right now. The pollen just layers everything.

Mr. C rinsed his truck off, but it was covered again a few hours later.

Mickey Mouse hasn't had to sweep the back porch in several days because the stirred up pollen just settles back down again.

The kids have had loads of fun drawing pictures on the glass top of the back porch table. The little girls think the the pollen is chalk dust.:)

Even though we take our shoes off before entering the house, we still carry pollen in on our clothes. Buddy's coat of black hair is covered in it every time he comes in, too. There's a thin layer throughout the house. It's been much worse than last year, maybe because we haven't had any rain lately. I shouldn't complain too much, though. If it weren't for the pollen we wouldn't be able to enjoy the Creator's handiwork.

I guess we can endure the pollen and reap the blessings of nature. Thankfully we haven't had any severe allergy outbreaks. I hope all of you are enjoying spring where you live, too! :)

Oh do I know about the pollen. Our car looked so bad till my youngest daughter said she "just had" to rinse it off. I told her I didn't see the need in spending an hour washing it for it to get covered all over again in just 24 hours time...so we're waiting till the pollen clears out of the air. Yesterday you could see it in the air it was so bad.

My husband suffers from allergy/pollen season every spring and fall. But I agree, without it, there would be no beautiful blooms. We have to take the bad with the good!

The sight of all that pollen made me sneeze!!! Okay, okay, so it's the pollen blowing in the strong north winds here that was really the culprit. Spring has definitely sprung at your house!

Hi Mrs. C,

Mrs. B linked to your blog, so I thought I'd come check it out--it's been such a long time since I've visited!

I completely understand the pollen! South Carolina has it bad, too. I read in the newspaper that an "extremely high" pollen count is 120; in Atlanta, the count was over 5,000! It's the 2nd highest count on record. Not so good for allergy sufferers like me. :(

Spring is showcased beautifully in your yard. :)
