Spring Colour Week at Poppytalk: Yellow!

Yellow is one of my all-time favorite colors.

But when it’s in the form of pollen on our driveway? Not so much.

Yep, that yellow tinge all over the concrete driveway is pollen. That’s springtime in Texas for ya. Here, take a closer look.

Kinda makes your eyes water, doesn’t it? (It’s from the oak trees — they put out loads of the stuff this time of year. Gets all over everyone’s cars, windows, everywhere. Yesterday there was so much on the front doorknob I had to go back in the house and wash my hands before I could leave the house!  Bleg. We need some rain to wash it away, any of you want to send us some?)

Okay, how about some more yellow by the driveway?

There now, much better.

And how about some daisies that are hanging over the edge of the driveway?

Uh oh, there’s an oak catkin (with pollen!) in this photo (on the flower on the left). Let’s try that again.

Ahhh, much better.

Achoo! Achoo!
