Rain + Spring = Mud, Pollen & Flowers

Friday Follow

Welcome Friday Followers!

They say (and I always wonder who "they" is...) you can't have the good without the bad.  This totally applies to Springtime in Georgia.  I've lived in Georgia for 25 years and don't really remember Springtime in other states, so correct me if I'm wrong, but we have the worst pollen counts EVER!  Just yesterday it was over 5000! 

While we have beautiful Springs, the Dogwood trees are blooming...

as are the Azaleas...

and the seeds are sprouting in the "lettuce garden"... (come link up your garden plans)

But along with the Springtime comes rain and mud puddles...
so the kids donned their play clothes and old shoes and splashed to their hearts content...

And when the rain comes we get to see just how much pollen we've been breathing in...

I'm so thankful that I don't have allergies, because here in TX, my car is a yellowish green color every day. YECH!

The mud puddles look like so much fun!!......you should see how yellow my white Jeep is from all the pollen here! yikes!! - it's the only downside to spring.
