Flowers in spring are what many people look forward to during this time of year. My own yard has a group of roses that I would take credit for, except they grow whether I care for them or not. I enjoy being outside during all seasons, but recently, I’m scared. I’m afraid that soon after exciting the house, my allergies attack and send me dropping to me knees. Sneezing, eyes watering, itching… you know the drill. If I don’t prep first with allergy medicine, eye drops and more, just looking out the window sends chills through me and have me closing the window blinds. I had to get a doctor’s prescription just to look at the photo below.


Spring is great, but allergies can keep you from enjoying the beauty it has to offer, like these roses. Photo by Tim Stanley Photography.
