On Hayfever

One side affect of the rain after a long drought is that the flowers and trees are going berserk with their pollen. Hayfever is rampant, even amongst those who don't normally get any symptoms.
In our area grows this flower. We don't know what it is, but it was introduced about 60 or so years ago and spread like a weed. It probably is. But it is mostly within a 15km radius from here, along roadsides and unkept paddocks and fields. It's very pretty but it's pollen really affects anyone susceptible to hayfever and Lana is just waiting for them to die off once Summer takes hold.
