Downside -- the cedar pops and I live in absolute agony for about 4-6 weeks. Allegra and Zyrtec are the only things keeping me sane at the moment. It's miserable. I even tried my potion, but I don't think I had enough berries. The tea looked very weak and it hasn't worked the same magic for me that it has in years past.
Upside -- the weather is admittedly unpredictable, but can be surprising with a fair amount of gloriously good-weather days. For example, here is the forecast for this weekend...Highs in the 70s and 80s, Lows in the 50s.
Which is precisely why we are going camping this weekend! Must get busy packing and whatnot. Cheerio! Pictures to come.
