Allergy Season Begins

This time of year is one of the worst for my allergies. It is the time when the air is filled with allergens from the many blossoms that are appearing on the trees.

It is a miserable time for allergies, but also a beautiful time of year in the Central Valley.

It is a beautiful time of year, but I will be happy when it is over and my allergies calm down a bit. For now, I just keep taking my allergy medicine.
