sneezing, sore throat, burning eyes

Some tree or bush is sending its sickly-sweet fragrance wafting into my windows. It is driving me crazy because it makes my allergies go haywire. I sneeze, my throat hurts, my eyes burn, and I want to scream. But I don't wish to shut the windows and turn on the air conditioning, which would solve the problem. It is far too nice a day for that, and my electric bill is always so bad in the summer that this cool weather is a blessing. So I will go on sneezing, wheezing and rubbing my eyes until the tree or bush or whatever it is drops its last wilted bloom of the season.
