We took this of Phantom (who seems to think he is in trouble for some reason) after Rob took him for a run on Sunday morning.. His entire beard is YELLOW from Pollen, and you can even see it caked inside his nose. German radio said this year is the worst year for allergies they've seen in 2 decades.
The late start to spring accompanied by an early bloom of later plants because it has stayed so warm means that EVERYTHING is blooming together right now, which is unusual. This, coupled with the fact that there has been little to NO rain or wind, means that people who suffer from seasonal allergies are completely miserable. The pollen is covering cars, sidewalks, rooftops, and even our windowsills and counter tops when we leave any windows open.
