So who spilt the paint?

I don't know if you guys have seen this but it should give you a good explanation. Liam will know all about this but Kenny I know you will find this interesting.

Thanks both for visiting and admiring our no parking yellow lines.

Yeah. It was like that here. There was a great big cloud of pollen over us.

Here is a photo I took of it It was one Facebook. :)

Best Wishes!

AH - I have seen this over here after a shower. Sometimes the roadside is awash with pollen. I have never seen it as a cloud though.

Jethro How did you know I would find it interesting?

Nice! I'll have to add Falls Lake to my to-do list ... looks like lots of interesting nooks 'n crannies to explore around there!

Kenny as you are a fellow Brit with an enquiring mind I would find it strange if you were not puzzled my our two week deluge of yellow poster paint powder that we get every year. I have seen it 15 times and I am still amazed by it.

Kevin this is the no-engines part of Falls Lake called Beaver dam the great thing is that the water is high right now and the water lilies almost non existent so you can indeed go poking about up the inlets and little creeks. Thats exactly what we'll be doing tomorrow.

Warmest regards to you both.
