Achoo Achoo!

This time of year both Han and I are reminded of our aversion to pollen.  We have a lovely tree next to our patio that provides some much needed shade from the summer sun, but each year around this time it erupts in gorgeous white flowers that attract lovely insects, but sadly also the sneezes coming from our house.  We are debating what to do with it, keep it and put up with it for the few weeks it blooms?  Or plant something a bit more allergy friendly.  Oh well, whatever we decide I had fun trying to catch photos of some of the insects today.
