    No idea .....the last picture they look almost like pesticide granules that stuck to a moist leaf...the others I have no idea. I am assuming it is a scale of some sort but there are only three that I know of and that does not appear to be any of them.

    Time to sharpen your blades though:):):)

    Slime mold. Occurs during wet times. Not a big deal other than visually.

    Without a doubt the answer. Wash it off with a garden hose and more water or u can mow it off

    I think part of the problem is all the rain you have been complaining about.
