Wondering about wild grapes

Wondering what caused the "yellow".

 Yesterday, I told you how everything is turning yellow and that everyone drives a yellow car.  I am going to show you pictures of what caused all this yellow:


Do you see the buds and new leaves forming?  This next one was an early riser.  It has leaves on it already:


 And some more.  Notice how blue the sky was.  Not a cloud int the sky:


 This is out at the end of my open entrance field.  The trees are across the road:


 And this last one is looking along a section of my driveway that runs parallel with the road but a few hundred yards back from the road:


May you day be full of blue skies and mild temperatures so that you can have a great day, you hear?

  3. What kind of trees are those? Are they the ones who that are "shedding" pollen? Did you say if that pollen is sticky on your car? (I can't remember a whole day ago... sorry).

  5. Ain't supposed to get over 95 here today and its 87 right now. Of course in the sun it feels a lot warmer so I work 5 minutes and rest in the shade 15.

  6. Justastick, I am origianlly from Pennsylvania, but the western end.

    The Odd Essay, they are oak trees and they shed pollen along with the pines that sticks to everything including the cars.

    Sixbears, yep this 80 degree weather is not too hard to take.

    David, I just went and looked and it is only 83 degrees here, you beat me again. Yes, don't do too much work in that heat. Just think, it is going to get a lot hotter.

  7. Our yellow season has passed, but until it did, our outdoor furniture was SO yellow that after a sprinkle, the yellow turned into permanent dye on anything made out of fabric. Even our furnace filter was yellow.

  8. Lotta joy, the yellow pollen isn't as bad as the Love Bugs. They mess everything up and smell bad, too.

  9. Hey, my friend, thanks for the explanation of what causes all that there yellow you folks get there.

    We had some yellow outside. It was yellow in parts of the remaining snow.

    And now we wait for some kind of sign, any sign, that spring is on the way in lil' ol' England. I'm hoping the melting snow, yellow and all, is some kinda' sign.

    Peace be with you, my friend.

  11. Well, our "yellow season" is still six weeks or more away. We've just started mud season. Most of the dirt roads hereabouts have axle busting ruts in the pea soup mud. It'll be that way until early May. About the time the grass needs mowing they'll be passable again. Used to make good money hauling folks out of the mud in my youth. Now I'm slowly sinking into it. And So It Goes.

    As to the CML diagnosis, it might explain why you glow in the dark (overexposure to radiation being the usual cause). You take care -- we need more folks like you in this world, not fewer.

    1. Will, I lived in Pennsylvania the firs half of my life and we had pollen in the spring time but nothing to compare with this. It took me four or five squirts of the washer and run the wiper blades on the windshield so I could see to get out my drive way. And I use my Jeep every day. Thanks for the kind words and am sure glad you read my blogging efforts.

  12. I have been waiting for spring. The peeper frogs are singing and we have robins. Have been excited ... until you started talking about tree pollen, kicks my butt. I still have a few weeks of the "mud season" before the pollen starts. My dogs are mud balls, June can't get here fast enough!

    1. Are the days getting longer? The thing that I noticed after moving down here is that there isn't as much difference in the length of the summer and winter days like up there. Heck, I worked 8 to 5 in the engineering office at Pullman and I remember going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark. But I did love those extra long summer days.

  13. Whenever I see the trees looking like this it tells me that a brighter and warmer day is on the way. I can't wait.
