My least favorite spring flower (that starts blooming in August) is Australian wattle. It’s a pretty yellow flower that’s native to Australia. But, wattle is not fun to be around for those of us who suffer from pollen allergies. At this time of year I need antihistamines to overcome my struggle with hayfever symptoms. Do you have a favorite (or least favorite) spring flower?
Unfortunately this past week has brought more serious challenges than hayfever. My father is currently in ICU (critical care) preparing for heart bypass surgery next week. I’d appreciate your thoughts and prayers for my family.
