Changing seasons and a pollen forecast website for the UK

"To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier 
state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring."
- George Santayana -

Things are changing here in Aberdeen. However, it's still cold some days. Tonight's low is 39°F. It's amazing to see so many things blooming, even with it feeling cold, cloudy, and windy.

With the changing seasons, you may notice that your allergies here have kicked into gear. I've talked to many people who are often wondering what is in the air. I found a website that gives pollen counts here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/health/public/pollen-forecast. I really like the calendar they have on their website. I've attached it below.


  1. My cat actually gets hayfever here, now that we live in the UK. It's really weird! He never had it before.

    1. 1/4 of a benadryl (or equivalent) will help with that. My vet told me to give that to my dogs. It helps with their sneezing and runny nose.

  2. Yea! Not too much in August :)

    1. Hiking should be less painful that way. ;)


I am happy to hear from you!
