The weekly Daley: ‘Everything’s coming up ruses’

By From page A6 | April 18, 2014

With warm weather comes the growing season, and things are sprouting up everywhere. Green weeds along with green grass-like substances abound, and Iris plants are shooting up with their purple and root beer-hued crowns, while buds are turning to blossoms almost before our eyes. Pine pollen seems to have subsided, but something every bit as odious has taken its place in my neighborhood — some kind of sap, from oak trees I think. I don’t know how tree sap can turn into a black sand-like grit, but that’s what seems to be happening on my back porch.
