Flowering Trees

These probably don’t look like flowers to most people. I have overlooked them for years. But this year I realized that they were when I touched one and a small puff of yellow dust (pollen) was released into the air. For those who don’t live near a large grove of pine trees, you don’t know what it’s like when these things spread yellow dust all over everything. At least that’s the excuse we can use when company comes over.
