Last Friday when I was out at The House (see previous post), the birch trees had just started to try on a very subtle shade of spring green. Since then, Nature has been making fast progress towards summer, which is probably what more or less “knocked me out” this week (pollen allergy). I’ve been (extra) tired, with headaches and eye irritations; which is why I have not been very active in Blogland either, in spite of spending more time indoors than I would have wished.
Below is a photo from this morning to show you what a difference the past week has brought in the trees. We’ve gone from early spring to summer greens all in one swoosh! As the birch pollen count is still on High, I think I’d better stay in town this weekend – even if we have trees here, too.
This view is from the park in the middle of the housing estate where I live. Today!
