PICTURE OF THE MORNING

It's going to be one of those days. I have never seen the pollen from the Ashe juniper let go so early in the morning in such huge clouds. I was outside at 9am when it began and with each puff of wind the air just filled with pollen. You could see it in the air as a fine mist. You should have heard the oohs and ahhs- it was as good as a firework display.

We are not going to let it spoil our walk around the lake, although we will pay the price.

  1. That is AMAZING! I think our native Oneseed Juniper is about to release, though nothing of that quantity or intensity, I hope.

  11. Wow. I've never seen that in person. I'm not complaining about that, though. Just as soon not see it.
    It's amazing.

  12. Ugh, ugh, ugh - that is one thing I don't miss about Austin! I remember days like that well.
    Say, I saw you're going to Seattle Fling and so am I! Can't wait to meet you in person.
