Our Jasmine hedge.

I love to see the Jasmine, and the smell is like a perfume to me. However, when I sit outside, or do gardening, my allergies flare up. My doctor prescribes a nasal spray for me, which works. I just have to remember to take it daily during this time frame.

When I first came to Florida, I used to call it ‘hay fever’, as that is what allergies are called in England, and had totally forgotten it. That was until we were watching a detective program on Britbox, and the guy was sneezing, and eyes watering. He called it hay fever, and it put a smile on my face.


  1. Here in Australia we call it hay fever or seasonal allergies. I get mildly to moderately affected with Jasmine type bushes. My son does too. A partner years ago was going to plant Jasmine , my son said ‘ are you trying to kill me ‘.

  3. Blimey! Hay fever it is then. 😉 I planted star jasmine under our windows in California years ago and enjoyed the fragrance immensely. Allergies? This is the worst year ever here in North Carolina.
