Oh such flowering

Oh such flowering in April and May!
I wish I could enjoy birch, nettle and bay.

Alas: grasses, bushes and trees, even bamboo
give me but watery eyes and endless achoo...

Oh, my, but I enjoyed this. You made me laugh out loud. And I enjoyed the copyright "allergy season 2008." Wonderful.

That was funny, Leonard. Though it's probably not funny for you and me too! Sneezing, runny nose, yuck!
And yes the picture is THE Walden Pond! We visited Thoreau's house and the woods around and walked around the pond last year in August. It's in Massachusetts near Concord.
