Here in the South we have 5 seasons: Fall, Winter, Pollen, Spring and Summer.
Pollen Season comes around as soon as we start seeing 70-degree weather for about a week straight. And it hangs around for about two weeks or so. Two weeks in which you breathe, eat and drink pollen. You sit on pollen. You wipe pollen off your hair. You wipe pollen off your butt. You wipe pollen off everything. Not to mention your car. You have to turn on the windshield wipers and run water on your windshield if you leave your car still more than 10 minutes at a time.
Ironically, the weather is so beautiful right now that you want to be outside (grab a drink, sit on the porch), however, due to the pollen invading your life you choose to hang out inside and look through the window instead.
It is difficult to describe the constant haze in the air during pollen season. So I'm not going to try. I guess you can just imagine smoke, but it's pollen instead.
This is a picture of a tree at my house. It is full of pollen - the pollen is waiting on either 1. the wind to blow it off the tree or 2. the rain to wash it off the tree.
