Vernal Equinox

Spring is officially here - and not a moment too soon! It doesn't take much warm weather for the Bradford pear trees to blossom out - here's one framing the Sunsphere.

Fun Fact: According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America's 2009 allergy survey, Knoxville is the second worst city in the US for allergy sufferers. (Louisville, Kentucky is number one this year). This is not a fun fact for people who live here. Please pass the Zyrtec.

Wash it down with some, FB Knox. I love Bradford pears. So pretty this time of year.

Can't imagine you'd have more allergy causes than Florida!

What is the Sunsphere (and please excuse my ignorance)?

V - ha! FB cures everything!

Jacob - we're in a valley that traps all the pollen in America, apparently. The Sunsphere is leftover from the '82 World's Fair. If you check out my archives, You'll see I have a great fondness for this goofy sphere.

Here is is hayfever. Piriton must be the official sponser. How can anything be so pretty be so deadly.
