.Color at the end of a colorless day …. already there is a coating of green pollen on the windows, car windshield, and other surfaces such as water in the bird bath. Also my sinuses. Ahhh–chooo. ‘Scuse me. Some of the trees have new growth and the beginnings of Spring color.
The color, though welcome, is deceptive, as is the pollen. Usually February is the coldest month, with the most illness and intractable depression. It is a difficult month for elders and small children and those without adequate means to care for themselves. Please watch out for each other.
