An enormous amount of pollen accumulates EVERYWHERE during this time of year. I could be wrong. But this year didn't seem to be as bad as I have experienced in the past. I think the amount of rain we've seen in northern Georgia has done a good job of keeping the pollen down somewhat. But don't be fooled. It's still there en masse !
The Tulips I planted last year are producing some awesome flowers. More flowers appear with each passing day.
Like the Azaleas, the day-to-day changes are very apparent.
The blue-flowering Creeping Phlox is actually doing much better than expected. But more importantly, the red-flowering Creeping Phlox appears to be alive and well. It didn't, and still doesn't look too healthy. But I see flowers, which is great !
