I don’t remember having trouble with cedar pollen when we lived here before but once we got to Texas and the cedar trees became full of pollen, I had horrible allergies and had to take meds and Cedar fever drops . . I tried everything and some years one thing worked and the next year, nothing worked.
This week I have sneezed and wheezed and my ears hurt so I called my doctor’s office. They said “It’s cedar pollen! Use Flonase and take Zyrtec.” I was thinking . . there are no cedar trees around us. When I told Vince, he said “There aren’t any cedar trees near us.”
Then I saw a cardinal in the magnolia tree and took a picture.
Before I even found the cardinal . . I saw cedar trees . . right on the edge of our deck. That’s the deck railing there. I thought . . those blasted things are orange and full of pollen.
I found this picture taken a few months back. Notice how much more orange there is in them in the first picture? That’s pollen!
Ughh! I hate that I’m going to have to deal with cedar pollen here for at least January and February. I wish I had known in time to start taking the allergy meds around Thanksgiving. Next year I’ll know. Heck . . with a cat on my lap most of the time, I should probably take the meds all year.
