    Very cool. I love how angler the blooms are on this one. I think I would love it except for the 'scented like fresh cut hay' part. I have terrible hay fever- always have. I would have to keep this one at a distance.

    Cheers,

    hay fever most likely has to do with the pollen or mold in barns on the hay

    Yes. The dust especially. I grew up on a farm baling hay (coastal and peanut). I had to take allergy shots. As an adult, I just suffer through it. I think it is the pollen and dust that does me in. heh...
