Any seasonal sufferers out there?

You might remember from previous posts that I garden.  I love going out in our backyard and digging around and planting things.  Mostly, I plant things to eat but occasionally I will plant a flower.  This doesn't happen often, as it's been proven year after year that I can keep veggies alive a lot easier than I can flowers.  I have no idea why this is -- you'd think it would be the other way around.  In a post-apocalyptic world, I imagine that I'd be the gardener and the cook.  With maybe a pharmacy on the side, if I'm being judged by how many pharmaceutical-type things I brought with us on our camping trip.

Anyway.  I digress.

The pollen here is absolutely awful and there is nothing I am enjoying more than staying in our air-conditioned home with my seasonal allergy medication.  I have not felt even an inkling of desire to plant a flower that will make me sneeze (which is probably best for the flowers, too).  This cubist flower print is the closest thing I'm getting to blossoms right now.

  1. I can understand why you wouldn't want to plant and look after flowers if they made your allergies worse! pretty skirt, love the gathered waist at the front :)

  3. I am definitely suffering from allergies right now (even your skirt almost made me want to sneeze!). The pollen count is ridiculously high.

    I am the same way, I cannot keep flowers alive but I am great with a vegetable garden!

    Adorable skirt, I love that it has pockets :) Have a great weekend, Rebecca!
