What is creating all the yellow pollen that's covering everything? I'm a recent resident of Fort Myers, and I've never seen anything like this. The white yard furniture looks yellow. I wiped the table twice today, and had to rinse the sponge repeatedly there was so much pollen. The maples were in bloom a few weeks ago, so I don't think its them. There are a number of live oaks in my yard, but I couldn't find anything that might be a flower on them. Do palms give off pollen? At least I don't seem to be allergic to it!
