With this temperate Spring weather comes many things. The ability to wear dresses and sandals more frequently, sunshine, strawberries, flowers. And dreadful allergies. And I have them.
Regardless of the season, I like to keep fresh flowers in the office as often as possible because it just makes things more cheerful! Right now I have a vase of hot pink carnations and another vase filled with an assortment of carnations, daisies, gerber daisies, and lilies. The assortment is SO pretty and the colors are downright gorgeous.
Immediately after placing the assortment on my desk, I began to feel their powerful effect. Instead of removing them like I probably should, I am enduring the sniffly, stuffy nose simply because I like the flowers. I have had flowers on my desk consistently for the past few weeks. Roses, chrysanthemums, carnations, and a few others, but none of them affect me like the lilies do. Unfortunately, they are one of my favorites! So instead of tossing them outside, I am pretending they have nothing to do with the fact that I have been sneezing more often than usual and it sounds like I have a vicious cold. They are nice to look at, so I am enjoying the sight of them, while constantly reaching for the Kleenex box. C'est la vie!
