For people who love their plants, gardening is one of the highlights of summer. But it may be more problematic than usual this year for gardeners with allergies: Experts are predicting that 2012 is going to be worse than previous allergy seasons because extreme weather, mild winter and record rainfalls in some parts of the United States have caused levels of pollen to spike.  But allergies should not keep you from gardening, which is an outdoor activity that many people love doing during this time of the year. The key is knowing what trees to leave alone, flowers to grow, and tasks to avoid.

GLAAD first contacted the Miss Universe Organization on Saturday, March 24, 2012 after news broke that Jenna Talackova was disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada competition.
