Picture Picture: Field of Weeds

The Professor is a brave, brave man – he took me on a hike despite the vicious period and terrifying mood swings. I am married to a saint. While I could not help but swear under my breath every time a happy family trotted by (yes, on beautiful days like yesterday the families were actually trotting with glee through the woods) we still managed to have fun.

Rag weed is in FULL FORCE this year. I honestly have not seen a weed bloom like this in years. It is both beautiful and terrifying. Thankfully my new asthma drug combination seems to be working and we were actually able to linger around the weeds and take some photos. Here are a few of our favorite shots.

Photos taken at Raven’s Run in Lexington, KY.

Beautiful, but don’t your bronchial tubes spasm just looking at it?


I told him to look happy and this is what I got 🙂 It took a lot of convincing but he finally agreed to my posting this.




My medication testimonial: If it weren’t for Singulair I never would have frolicked in these weeds!


For some reason I love this photo.


I made the Professor pull into a ditch so I could get this photo. Such a perfect day!

    Ah, the state flower… goldenrod. I guess they wanted to be upfront with people that it’s not a good state for those with allergies.

    Love the pic of you standing in the ragweed, conquering it like it’s no big deal! I have CRAZY bad allergies to this stuff, too, but I’ve found a natural remedy that *actually* works (it even beats prescription-strength anti-histamines) — nettle-leaf tincture. Look it up! I think it’s also much better for you if you’re trying to get preggo… at least that’s what my acupuncturist says… she even said it was a fertility booster. But who knows.

    I love the photos of you and Mr. Professor! Despite the fact you’re in pain, bleeding, moody and worried about being able to breathe, you look marvelous! Glad you were able to enjoy your hike.

    Gorgeous photos! And yes, I am spasming a bit from looking at all that pollen.

    So that’s ragweed, huh? Always wondered as it gets me every year, too. Love the photos! Those would make for really great photos for allergy medicine advertisements!

    You two are adorable!

    Holy geez, these pics are awesome!! We do not have that kind of lush greenery at this time of year in LA. Jealous!

    Wow GREAT PICTURES!! I thankfully do not have allergies so I could frolic in the ragweed all day!
