B13,
Not sure.  There's goldenrod,  another weed looking plant same size as goldenrod but with white flowers also i noticed some of the older Bradford pears are having a 2nd small bloom.

The white flowers could be asters.  They are usually the last to bloom around here.  Do they look similar to this?

All asters produce a yellow pollen.

about this time in Central Texas we get a good bit of stuff coming in from morning glories and asters... the asters evidently will keep producing a small quantity of pollen even after the first freeze..
