It's week 3 of daffodil watch here in central Jersey and we are incredibly close to a bloom. We're at the moment of early spring when things are just about to burst forth. The grass is suddenly greener and all sorts of bulbs are pushing through the soil. The trees are still stark with the look of winter but you can feel that's about to change. The air is – literally – filled with the promise of spring.
Which might very well explain all the sneezing.
