Blowing in the Wind

A dandelion seed can travel for a long time and for a great distance

The secret of success is to be ready when your opportunity comes. - Benjamin Disraeli #Quote

Dandelion Seeds

This weekend the warm weather has matured all the dandelion flowers to the point of seeding. The air was full of dandelion fluff floating through the air. 
We saw some come floating in through the office door. I saw a couple drifting into my truck.

Outside our office, the wind had swirled a huge cluster of the seeds in the pavement. 
Here's a photo of a part of that mass. Likely you wouldn't see this if it was on your lawn because it would get caught in the grass blades. On the asphalt, it just kept swirling around with each gust of wind.

Lawns beware!

So far my trees looking good. No obvious signs of distress. But the infestation is heavy now in the area. ..... Thanks http://bit.ly/1Gd6a68

Powdery mildew


Saw some powdery mildew on a customer lawn in Binbrook
Then our office help said someone called about "Dust fungus." They had taken a sample into a nursery and the staff told them this was the name.

It does look like a white dust on the foliage and when you walk through it, a puff of white dust does float through the air.
