Walking to the mailbox, I got a whiff of a neighbor's large ranger bush which was flowering like crazy (the remnants of mine flowered too). One sniffles culprit Identified! I've got these plants in my front and back yard...they flower twice a year, roughly. I guess if I wasn't living in Tucson, I'd be just as miserable with colds that come with the change of seasons. That and the bonechilling ache that comes with wind chill in the negative numbers. Gee, just thinking about that makes me want to brave the pollen and sit out in the sun for a few hours like an iguana on a rock.
