Rain and Oak Trees

It's raining ... again. The rain over the past week seems to have washed all of the yellow pollen away, but the last two days has brought something new. The oak tree seeds.

Yup, 'tis the season. Right now they are wet so they don't sweep up. But they also don't get tracked in to the house the way they do when they are dry. Then they get crushed and bring in dust. Or cling to socks and shoelaces and get tracked in whole.

When they are dry, we will have tumbleweeds of oak tree seed pods .. or whatever they are.

Just one of the things to deal with there are over 30 trees on the property :-) At least they give nice, cool shade in the summer.
