'Tis the season of the snow mold. I have a love-hate relationship with the stuff. On the one hand it's pretty gross and it makes me sneeze, but on the other hand it's a sure sign of spring. For some reason this year nearly our entire lawn was coated in snow mold.
I don't know a whole lot about snow mold, although I have read there are two primary types: gray and pink. I appear to have mostly the gray, also known as Typhula blight. It appears every year in the first warm days that melt a lot of the snow. At a glance it almost looks like lingering patches of snow, but it most certainly is not.
