Holy Cow!

Today on the way home from picking up my son I thought there was a fire in the mountains... and then we looked a little closer and realised that it was actually the cedar trees letting off a bit of steam... or pollen in huge quantities.  I have been sneezing a bit lately and thought that the pollen season must be almost upon us... today's spectacle confirmed it.  The tissue companies must love this season!!!!


  1. OMG, that is insane!! perhaps what I think is 'kiri' is actually also pollen wars amongst cedar trees. I have never seen that kind of performance around here so heres to a sneeze free lunch tomorrow :)

  2. It looks really spectacular! I visited rural Japan (Near Okayama) as well, and did a hike hthough a forest in the mountains. But it was in fall, so I couldn't see something like this.
