Last week we had a huge pollen explosion around Raleigh. Every surface outside was covered with yellow dust, and people were sneezing left and right at the grocery store.
But it was all worth it. Seemingly overnight, leaves were popping out on branches and flowers and trees are blooming.
One of our favorite things about our new neighborhood (other than the fact that a lot of the houses are a lot nicer than ours, so we can fix ours up as much as we want and still not have to worry about going too far) is the lake, with picnic tables and benches next to it. There's actually a lot of little lakes in the Raleigh area, many nestled between housing developments, and we're happy to have this pretty lake, with blossoming trees next to it, to be able to visit once we finally move in.
So pretty and springy! Have you had a pollen explosion yet this year where you live? Any signs of spring yet in your neck of the woods?
