Spring: Friend or Foe?

The flowers are blooming, and the trees are budding.  Mother Nature decorates with brilliant colors and sprouts tender leaves.  Dandelions dot the landscape like yellow stars in a sky of green.

Noses are sneezing and sniffling; eyes water and foreheads wrinkle in pain.  Spring is praised for it's beauty and cursed for it's allergy-inducing pollens.

Written for Friday Flash 55.


  1. Dandelions? Flowers?
    Can I come stay with you for a couple of weeks?
    Loved your Vernal 55 Linda
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  2. And this year starting earlier than ever! Cheers!

  3. Hi Linda .. great Friday Flash - and I love the pink camelia .. beautiful colour .. Dandelions have their uses! Cheers Hilary

  4. Ah! Pollen! That's why I've been... no, wait. It's still winter here.

  5. me some spring...but then again i dont have allergies...

  6. I am so thankful I don't have allergies!! Jepeto has them, but, oddly enough, he suffers during late summer, not spring. I guess he's not allergic to pollen... maybe ragweed?

  7. G-Man- C'mon down, the weather's fine.

    Other Mary- It had an easy start here since it was such a mild winter.

    Hilary- Thanks. I've heard people eat dandelion greens.

    Alice Audrey- Don't worry, Spring is on it's way to your place.

    Brian- Thankfully, I don't either.

    Nicky- Hubby has allergies in the Spring and to a lesser degree in the Fall, too.

  8. I *love* the Spring. But I *hate* the allergies!

  9. Ahh and here we have only the mere hint of buds.. and our sneezes are still from winter colds. Pretty flower, Linda.

  10. I like this line: "Dandelions dot the landscape like yellow stars in a sky of green." That's a wonderful visual.

    This was a perfect 55 for Spring, especially the part apart "noses." We've definitely been suffering and my gray car is green:~)
