What are these mystery spots?
Here’s the scenario: After careful analysis, we realize these spots are on everything: ground, garden decor, all plants on the west side of the yard. These are all understory plants under our huge shingle oaks and the neighbors’ big sweet gum that hangs over. The “things” don’t appear to be damaging anything at this point and the plants are all healthy. Our concern is what might burst forth from these “spots” in the future and take over the earth! At the nursery the guys operated on one — cut it in half and looked under the magnifying glass. They thought it most likely was an egg for something but couldn’t tell. - Betty Lou -
