|That's right, those are dandelion puffs about as tall as the snow was deep in winter 2014. We didn't move to the forest to have a manicured landscaped, but hopefully we'll figure something out that's xeriscapic and deer resistant, i.e. native.|
Turns out that the fog was actually pine pollen. Whoa. We don't remember it being quite this copious in the past, so perhaps it's an especially big year for pine pollen. Woo.
Then a few days later: pine pollen on the hot tub cover, pine pollen on the patio furniture, pine pollen on the deck and on the cars, and pine pollen on the back door knob. I wish I knew how to capture the yellow or alter the photo to show how yellow it really is. Just know that it's sulfer-y in color and all over the place!
