Fuubutsushi….more words for the changing season


Is it still winter? For a few more days technically. I’m suffering the anticipation of the change of season with the obligatory allergy sniffle.

I’m anticipating a monster pine pollen season. It’s always so interesting when all cars parked outdoors for more than an hour become a lovely yellow hue.

A little further northwest in Austin, Cedar fever should be in full swing in the next week or two. They actually have shots for that….homeopathic remedies include concentrated tinctures of cedar pollen rubbed into strategic pressure points on the body.

Mostly, I’m looking forward to the blue bonnets this year. The rains we’ve had since last October should make this season really great.

Spring brings back happy memories, and makes me look forward to seeing things bloom. We will get the garden planted, and look forward to tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh herbs.


I’m grateful for the early signs of spring…warm breezes, sunshine, and budding trees.

My Fuubutsushi is in full gear. The fresh scent of just cut grass has me ready for a lovely warm weather time.

What triggers your Fuubutsushi? Is it a calendar season? A holiday season? A season in your life?

Do you look forward to changing your wardrobe, changing colors, longer days, fresh veggies?

I’d love to hear about it!

    • Thanks Mark! The time change has me wonky on longer days right now. It’s not fun leaving the house in the dark, and coming home in the dark. It makes winter very depressing. I need sunshine, and I’m looking forward to the sun setting later and later.
