Tree dropping yellow 'flowers'
I am tree-challenged. I know nothing about them. But three large trees on the side of our house have thousands (no, billions) of small 'crowns' or 'flowers' hanging upside-down from the leaves ready to attack us with help from the wind. They drop at a fast rate, and get all over everything. Not dust, but little crowns with a stem. Our shoes crush them and invite them to meet our carpets, and we seem to be the only ones within many blocks to have such trees. (Need directions to our house? Follow the yellow-crown road!)
What are they, is there anything I can do, and do they make barbecued food taste better?
