Here Today

The white bushes to the right are spirea. They are in full bloom right now but it is supposed to rain several inches in the next few days starting tonight so the delicate blooms will probably be beaten off. The little green lump in front of the spirea is a peony that has buds that aren't yet opened. 
The yellowish-green trees are oaks and putting off a lot of yellow pollen. I washed my car yesterday hoping to see out the windshield. I was afraid the windshield wiper would just make a smeary mess.
So the same torrent of rain that will damage the spirea display may get some of this awful pollen out of the air.
The dogwood can still be seen in the background. Their blooms are not so fragile and may survive the rain.
