Thanks, Carol, for your kind comment. Allergies aren't great. Have you tried Horseradish? I have treated this problem as a Naturopath - easy to treat with herbs whether it is acute or chronic. There's always a lymphatic and liver involvement. Have always had success. Hope you have a great weekend. Love, Maureen

Oh yes, already people are complaining of their allergies...almost as much as they complained about winter. Spring is beautiful but for people with allergies, this is a tough time. Excellent haiku, dear! Love, Carolyn
