The birds and the bees...and the seeds

Spring in Barcelona is always a wonderful experience. The birds start chirping at odd hours of the morning, the zoo animals are suddenly all pregnant and the humans tend to walk with a new forward flowing energy. It is a time of green, sun and showers.
One of my favorite things about Barcelona in the spring is the fact that it is not hot yet and you can walk around with a light sweater. Most of the tourists have not arrived yet and you get the sensation of waking up from a nice long sleep of dreary grey mornings and cumbersome jackets. The blood in your veins start running a bit faster with more heat and energy and there is a fever to go out and do things.
Even the grandma's and grandpa's start taking their posts on the benches to watch the people walk by.
The other face of the Barcelona spring, something to take into account if your glass is half empty, are these little flying seeds that permeate the air around you causing an epidemic of "aaaahchoooo! aaaachooo! achooo's!" If you are an exceptionally allergic person, there is no cover or safe spot for the allergies so you should really consider your precautions before coming as no one like an itchy nose and watery eye while they are trying to enjoy the Sagrada Familia.
