    Oops! I know that feeling. The beauty of the wakening land brings tears to your eyes. Then the pollen hits.
    It usually doesn’t get me until they start harvesting the hay around here but I’ve seen Marigold’s expression in panel 3 in the mirror once or twice.

    Poor Marigold! It looks like her nostrils aren’t so heavenly this time of year. And I sympathize completely. From March to November, I can tell what’s blooming, depending on whether my eyes, nose or throat are irritated. (And from November to March, I probably have a cold…)

    Blow on her tail and see if your wish comes true!

    I dunno about that. Do we REALLY wanna see Dakota with a bad case of acne?

    But she is a magical unicorn! Allergies are so mundane. Isn’t there a magical remedy for this?

    My late roommate used to think I was getting a cold when I sneezed. I would say it was my allergy(which it was.)
    He’d reply, ’It’s not allergy season.’
    My reply,"My allergies don’t keep calendars.’

    Oak, maple, and pine trees bloom a month before flowers pop up or grass turns green.

    : D My hubby’s mom kept telling him he had a “summer cold.” After we were married, I finally sent him to an allergy specialist… (and he’s allergic to various things in every single month of the year.)

    Yes there is. It’s called “benadryl” and it’s available at your local magical drugstore!

    Yeah, you’d think a herbivore wouldn’t.

    an equine with hay fever? there’s as much a cure for irony as there is for backache

    What happens to the flora and fauna that get hit with the blast?

    Oregon is weird with allergies. Mold is the primary allergy in the willamette valley (the name means valley of sickness) and it’s worst during the 9 month wet season. There’s enough rain during the spring to keep most plant-based allergens to levels like 100, 250, etc.
    Most years there has been sunshine but no rain for months on the east side of the cascades. Pollen counts from juniper tend to be in the 1000s. One year, a local allergy outfit that kept track had a count over 6000. Like a yellow fog in places. Arg.
