Peculiar Pollen Post
Pollen collecting in rainwater
Just a one-off post today of something unusual I noticed a few days ago.At first, I thought it was some strange fluid leaking from parked cars (antifreeze, brake fluid...who knows). I soon realized, however, that one of the neighbor's trees (some sort of evergreen) is producing huge amounts of acid-yellow pollen right now, forming strange psychedelic ribbons of color in the ever-present pools of rainwater. Bizarre!

That is very strange looking and there sure is a lot of it. I know they produce resin so maybe that is what that is.ReplyDelete

Bizarre indeed, glad you captured it.ReplyDelete
We get that here when the neighbor's Acacia baileyana blooms. Sometimes our whole driveway will be yellow. Awesome photo.ReplyDelete
Bizarre, but very interesting shot...ReplyDelete
That is beautiful! I think it's suitable for framing :-) Really cool when nature makes art!ReplyDelete
Beauty, in a surprising location!ReplyDelete
When our Blue Atlas Cedar blooms, literally pounds of bright pollen cover everything.ReplyDelete
It makes for a fascinating photograph Scott.ReplyDelete
That really is a piece of art Scott.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photo! We get pollen from our Ashe junipers, but rarely have the rain to go along with it.ReplyDelete
We get tons of pollen in spring (of course), but I've never seen so much in autumn! It looks a little pretty, very interesting, and a bit icky too!ReplyDelete
I like that picture. It reminds me of Edvard Munch's painting "The Scream". Is it typical for trees to produce pollen at this time of year in Portland?ReplyDelete
Just noticed you have a lot of Texas gardeners posting on your blog.ReplyDelete
Pollen and small flowers are common on the ground here, but seeing them in swirling water like that, i still haven't seen. The photo is really marvelous!ReplyDelete
Very cool. It sort of looks like Van Gogh's "Starry Starry Night."ReplyDelete
Never seen this kind of pollen before! It's really awesome!ReplyDelete
I was sweeping up our driveway earlier this week and was surprised to see quite a bit of bright yellow pollen, the kind I normally see in spring.ReplyDelete
Love your picture!
My neighbors have a cedar, not sure if it is Deodara or Lebanon, that always puts out a little pollen in the fall, and boat loads in spring.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your Foliage Follow Up. The colors in your photos and in your neighborhood were beautiful. I wish more gardeners would plante the Parrotia. The few I have seen here are near red to orange.
Good observation, looks like paper coloured on floating oil, lovely. ChristinaReplyDelete
Fascinating! That is espy in action! Great capture.ReplyDelete
Wow, that is unique. Reminds me of an impressionistic painting. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
The shot is fantastic, as ever, I wonder what plant can produce that amount of pollen in november! It certainly looks similar to pine pollen.ReplyDelete
A really pretty photo!ReplyDelete
what interesting swirls in the photosReplyDelete
It is shipped all over the long time, I've come to both passion and hate labels. A full deal of the the back or vice versa and since I reuse the bottles I demand to remove both labels.ReplyDelete
