The time of the yellow dust

For some time now, everything has been covered with a layer of yellow dust and the air seems to be thick with it. When I was mowing the lawn by the side of our garden the other day my arm brushed every now and then a branch of a spruce tree releasing a yellow cloud each time. I never knew even spruces produce such a lot of pollen.

Many people consider the season of the rebirth of nature their favourite. For some, however, it is the most inconvenient despite all its beauty and splendour. When there is so much pollen in the air that we have to brush it from the floor of our porch, patio and balcony every day it is easy to imagine the distress this wonderful season may cause to the allergic ones.
