For the past few weeks whenever I talk to people on the phone they ask me if I have a cold. I don't, I have allergies. I'm actually lucky that I didn't start experiencing allergies until just a few years ago. For the most part they are so mild I choose not to take antihistamines but sometimes they'll leave me sounding a bit scratchy and froggy.
I'm wondering if the culprits might be the gorgeous pink magnolias and ornamental plum trees blooming all around the Bay Area right now.
If they are, it's a small price to pay so don't worry about me, I'm not sick, I'm just enjoying the flowers :)
