I grew up in Georgia hearing many a person say "tree sperm" this and "tree sperm" that this time of year. Yeah, not the most pleasant vision, right? Especially when you consider it is covering EVERYTHING right now. Five years out of the South and I almost forgot what pollen season was like. There is yellow everywhere - covering my car, the playground, the benches, the sidewalks, the windows - everything!!
This is one time of year when I welcome those big rain clouds:
Things are just a little nicer without a coat of yellow... or whatever you want to call it.
