Different types of pollen are released throughout the year from about March starting with the tree pollen, then we have the grasses and let's not forget the "weed" (I don't call them weeds, I have dandelions on my lawn amongst the daisies and very welcome they are too) pollen and this all goes on until around September.
The pollen count is pretty low at the moment due to the rain (I knew there was an upside to all this much needed rain apart from refilling the resevoirs! ) but still I'm sneezing and spluttering somewhat. My nose is so twitchy that I'm having to wear those rather fetching nose strips at night, the postman thinks it highly amusing when I answer the door forgetting I still have it on!
Its not helped by this as I open the front bedroom curtains in the morning at the moment, but so worth it for the view -
those glorious mellow yellow flowers are so very pretty but so very itchy on my nose!
