We had a bit of rain today, which washed all the pollen out of the air. As you can see in the snaps the puddles in the gutter were full of it. I have been told it is pollen from pine trees. No wonder my eldest son has been suffering from hay fever. The pictures do not really show up how bright and sulpherous the colour is. My advice is if you suffer from hayfever and need to visit Hawkes Bay at this time of year, make sure you have a lot of antihistamines with you.
