Pollen Season

Pollen under the electron microscope is fascinating, even beautiful. I like to browse Pollen: the Hidden Sexuality of Flowers when I'm at the library. This time of year, however, I am not fascinated by pollen. Instead I dread, dislike, and complain about it.

So I crocheted a pollen scarf. Well - it looks like it could be a form of pollen. It doesn't, however, cause headaches or complaints.

I'll even wrap it around my neck. Seeds: Time Capsules of Life is another plant life book that's enjoyable to leaf through. No complaints about seeds, though I suppose I should because seeds become those birches and maples that bring forth the pollen I dread.
