Oh that's absolutely brilliant, Mark! I so enjoyed both the beautiful atmosphere you set with the first two lines and the witty, unexpected conclusion! Best of the bunch!

I don't know, Harry, I'm pretty much allergic to every tree out there in the Spring :) Thank you for your encouraging compliment! ~Mark
