a down side

The oak and maple pollen count is very high around here and though it is no fun for me right now, it is necessary part of the cycle of tree life. When these same trees purify the air, hold nests for the robins, filter the sun’s light, and shade my home, I think they are wonderful. Without rain, no flowers; without crawling caterpillars, no beautiful butterflies. Without grass to be cut or weeds and wildflowers to be chopped, our soil would wash away. There is always a flip side to everything and so with nature in the spring. We just have to take the good with the bad.
