The Mystery of the Live Oak Wool
Happy 1/2 birthday to me
Stop. Before we get started, let me take note. The Blog Archive list (just below labels) over there -->
tells me that I have now posted 182 times (this is 183). This is my half a year birthday for this blog. Wow. Quite frankly, I never expected it to last that long.
On to the mystery ..
Speaking of unexpected -- see the photo above? This was all over my hood when I woke up yesterday. It was the first real cool snap to dip into New Orleans and I guess that's a kind of signal to all the trees. These droppings are from an Live Oak Tree I park under. I've parked under oaks before but never noticed much of this, this....this.... oak wool, let's call it.
Anyway now I have a mystery on my hands. I've Googled it and best I can get out of it is that it may be a infection by some wool-sowing insect.
The thought plickens....
A couple of "color cutout" photos are must see today. (Note to myself -- learn how to do this) --
