I have a love/hate relationship with spring. I love the new growth, the flowers, the birds returning and all the lovely shades of green. I hate the fact that my eyes swell up, the sneezing, and the sniffling. I'm sure people must wonder what on earth is wrong with me because I go about looking as though I've been through a huge crying jag. All this despite living on extra strength allergy meds. Argh!! Oh well, once the trees are in full leaf I will be able to breath again (I hope).
