Abstract Photo: Pollen

Today's photo is a bit abstract but I wanted to show you what's on the window - the stuff that looks like dust is actually pollen from blooming trees and flowers of the area. The air is really full with them at the moment so you see everything covered with it - windows, cars, outside tables and chairs, etc. I even noticed it on my camera when I sat outside for an hour - afterwards it had a thin layer of pollen on it. That's the reason why it was good that we had some rain in the afternoon yesterday to clear the air a bit again. I guess, everyone with allergies agrees with me on that :).

If you're interested in what kind of pollen we have in the air at the moment, check out this "Pollen Radar" (in German).

... almost forgot:
HAPPY MOTHER's DAY to all the moms visiting my blog today!!!

Very creative "abstract" piece - it could be an impressionist painting by Nicola Angelo!

Oh, I know that look! We live in the woods, and the tree pollen just covers everything like that all summer, but the month of April is particularly horrible.

We have been having a really bad allergy season this year. I have been sneezing between camera shots all day.

Thanks for your comments!! I have been lucky so far and not been "blessed" with allergies, but you never know... (knock on wood!)
