The flowers that keep on giving…
As I type I literally couldn’t feel more lousy with hay fever. An afternoon repainting my summerhouse has wrought havoc on my senses and now I have read that the imminent rainfall will make it worse again for the following week.
Brilliant! Don’t worry, this isn’t a ‘feel sorry for myself’ post, I’ve suffered with it for well over thirty years but what I have noticed is that it is getting worse year on year and more interestingly, more people are getting it.
I know a number of people who have never suffered before and are complaining of the symptoms this year. I find that strange and wonder why it is? Hay fever sufferers get a triple whammy of pollens; flowers, grass and trees all take it in turns to unleash their goods and every year we spend millions of battling it to no avail.
Has anyone got any ideas for the reasons behind the increase or, better still a cure which I do not know about? Don’t say local honey, it doesn’t work-been there, tried and failed.
Here’s the coastal town of Cleethorpes on a wet and windy Tuesday in June this year, a momentary relief from the pollens before business as usual once it dried up. If you are one of the lucky few not to suffer then make the most of the summer, it might be your last before the sneezing gets you too!
