Random thought of the day – Am I the only Gardener who suffers with hayfever – “Isn’t ironic ?”

Previous post: Ian Digs - where did you go does anyone know ?
No I get it too, didn't start with it till around 10 years ago though in my mid thirties, end of April till mid July(typical best time to be in the garden) then I'm fine, one year even had what looked like blisters on the whites of my eyes, now the minute it starts I use the one a day tablets and nasal spray and eye drops when its really bad. which help a lot, except for a couple of weeks in the middle were nothing works.
So you're not on your own Angie :-)

Thanks for that Simbad - I’ve suffered with this since I was a child – some days are worse than others – the gas thing is I’m allergic to cats too and had one for years – think I am a glutton for punishment xxx
I can add to that,my hay fever peeked when in my late thirtys( my wife would provide 15 clean handkerchiefs each day to take to work from May to July) tisues were useless, when I think back it was a bad time. Now I am so old my senses are totaly numb anyway and dont have it any more except for about 2 weeks when the trees are in blossom,oh and mock orange that will blow my head off lol
i started about 8 years ago, it drives me insane at times, my son joe has it to and older son johnny had it slightly,even some of my perfume makes me sneeze to lol, grass cutting really gets to me even though i love the smell, but i will put up with it for my garden :o))
thanks for all your comments - I am not alone - feel like I've inhaled a whole pot of pepper after today - atchoooooo (eh that was a sneeze)
bless you ;o)
had it since i was at school - thats why i failed so many exams !!!! -honest- but its getting better the older i get
Thanks sandra - Viv I guess that can be my excuse too :)
so bad viv, how awfull for you ;o(
Hello Angie, sorry to hear about the dreaded hayfever, what a nuisance for you. Is it the tree pollen that affects you initially.
I have only had it for the last 10 years, Lillies and mowing the lawn are the worse for me.
lillies here to Drc, have them in shop at work at times and i cant bare it, gives me a headache and feel sick, but they dont move them grr
Yes Sanbaz same here, I cant have lillies in the house at all. I have them in the garden but avoid them when they flower.
Hey Dawn - Not sure wot triggers it - I even sneeze in winter !!! DRC I have lillies in a vase so could be that - Sandra I think you need to come over and shoot me at this stage with my ailments :)
Lilies are well known for it Angie, if you remove the pollen bit you wont get staining and should stop sneezing.
Thanks DRC - I',m gonna do that now - I love lillies but they don't like me :)
