Yellow Blütenstaub arrives in Drachselsried

Blütenstaub is the German word for pollen and this April arrives as one of the largest on record. The yellow powder comes from all the trees in the forest combined with the pollen from apple, cherry and plum trees plus all the flowers. Normally winds and rains have washed it away.
