Rain Brings Rust

The rain yesterday and today have caused the telial horns of the cedar apple rust galls to start swelling. They're not quite as gelatinous and alien-like as I've seen them in the past, but spring is young!

Though this disease is bad for both its hosts -- cedars and apples -- I think those things are cool looking, and I appreciate the complex life cycle involving two host plants.
