Pollen and Seeds

Poor Madelyn and Paige have been miserable for the last several days.  Runny eyes and noses, head-aches, and sneezing has become their constant companions.  Friday and Saturday, Madelyn spent several hours in bed because she was so ill.  When I looked out the window this morning, I saw why they have been so sick.

The walkway and drive are full of seeds from our maple trees.
 All of our vehicles were covered with a visible dusting of pollen.  Amy had to use a brush to clean off her car.

Seed mulch is probably not a good idea.

The seeds remind me of snow drifts on the roof.
