Unintended consequence

Yesterday I noted that members of the aster family don't cause allergic reactions. Now I learn that if you take a few blooming stems of asters and dry them, you can shake them and watch all the little fluffy seeds drift around. And start sneezing. Apparently at that dry stage there can be enough loose pollen to cause a reaction. Who knew! Anne did. Thanks for the ellucidation Anne!
