Sakura Doom

Spring is here at last
Cherry blossoms are falling
Claritin, save me!

I wandered Saturday evening, my eyes red and puffy, my skin begging to be clawed from the bones of my skull, throat raw, looking forward to getting home and disappearing under a protective shield of running water. For I had realized, as tissue after tissue fell before my runny wrath, that the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom festival was this weekend. And with said festivities come... pollen.

Into the great indoors with me.

The beauty must be worth the suffering, though. I'm envious- most of the cherry trees in this state have been severely damaged due to heavy winds and surprise frosts. :(
Are you going to post any pics of the garden?
