There has been a lot of weird stuff going on in my yard recently, from fertilizer fiascoes to creepy growths to mysterious holes. Since y'all have been so helpful in identifying the culprits, here are two more mysteries for you!
1. I'm not sure these pictures do justice to how weird this tree looks, but it is FULL of tiny holes, thousands of them. So many that the holes merge to become indented lines. All I could think of is that woodpeckers must have done this over the course of years. What do you think? 2. Here is yet another ugly old shrub from my yard. What appear to be some old flowers on it have a really creepy disease going on. The picture to the right shows one in the sort of gelatinous phase. The picture below shows one in the later (I think) white fuzzy stage.
