North Carolina's pollen season


These photos were taken about 10 days ago at the height of our pollen season, when everything and everyone is coated yellow from the pine pollen. At times the pollen will be so thick in the air that it looks like smoke as far as the eye can see!
Cars leave tracks in the pollen!
Everything becomes covered with the stuff!

And washing the car is obviously a waste of time until the pollen season ends!

  7. When we lived in the mountains of New Mexico the Pinyon Pines similarly produced large quantities of yellow pollen. Sometimes it streamed from the trees as if they were on fire.

  8. I well know this, but our pines here are still not in bloom and, maybe, it will be not so much as in the past, because most of them are dead...it was to dry last 5 years.

  9. We haven't started the pollen season yet, but I'm terrified that it's approaching. My son and I also have a strong pollen allergy ... :(

    Have a fine week, Sue!

  18. Same thing happens here! South Texas.

  19. Gosh, I've never seen anything like that. Amazing nature, but must be difficult for people who are allergic to pine and pollen

    ReplyDelete

  22. I've only seen that level of pollen once (in Georgia). So happy it's not quite like that here in New York State, as my husband has those types of allergies. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  24. First time I see such a phenomena.
    I'm curious, this pollen is used somehow?
    Thank you for these images! I like the yellow on the red!
    Happy WW!

    1. Bees, insects, and birds spread pollen to keep our earth green and blooming, but I certainly haven't personally found a "use" for the thick coats of pollen that blanket North Caroline each spring!

  25. How pretty is this!
    Had no idea pine pollen could look like this. Does it cause allergies too?

    Having said that, it's such a huge step in propagation and keeping the ecosystem balanced.
    Love and light!
