The musings of a chef-caterer
turned estate gardener,
digging, pruning and
cultivating my way through a year in the garden

5733 is today's pollen count. According to the Atlanta Allergy and Asthma Clinic's website, anything over 120 is "extremely high." It's one of those days when the slightest breeze makes the conifers (not the offending trees) look like exploding vaccuum cleaner bags. Add the pollen to the list of reasons to not have sweetgums in the garden.
Hopefully NASA doesn't mind that I've borrowed their stock photo of this bee. I can't bring myself to spend any more time outside today, particularly since I have to keep dusting off the lens of the camera.
