Spring is in full force. I know this because everything is turning green and growing tall. The dandelions were three mini doxies high two days ago. Today when I pulled in the driveway there was a snow storm of cotton blowing around. If I ever decide to move I will be sure to check all of the living things around my new location prior to moving. I have a tree that is about 100 years old and taller than any house on the block and every year that beautiful tree tries to kill us. Everyone in my house is allergic to the cotton that it spews every spring. Today my youngest daughter mowed the lawn for me to get the rogue dandelions under control. Afterwards she showered for an hour because she was so itchy from the cotton floating in the air. At least spring is almost over and the tree will be done producing cotton soon.
