Susan and I got out and washed her Honda van this afternoon. The collected puddles of pollen from both the van and on the driveway were truly disgusting. Looks like toxic waste!

    Actually it is rather unusual...If you turned it horizontally it resembles some kind of a sea creature in the white area and with all the p's you used to describe it you could add pretty to the list:)

    It makes for a very interesting photo, but I know how disgusting the pollen count is. It's bad here also and they recommend we wear hats with brims to keep pollen off of our face and to wash cars, etc. Love your title!

    In fact, the puddle is disgusting, but the color effect and photographic composition, deserves to be applauded for your insight.
