There is a strange, orange-colored, foam looking, growth that appeared over night on my RR tie/ garden wall. It's about 6 inches long, an inch tall. I poked it, there's yellow like slime inside, when it dries, it's powdery. What in the world, has anyone ever seen anything like this? (I live in VA)

Sounds like powdery mildew,

that stuff will explode and grow from spores all over every thing, I've never actually had any myself, but have heard about it! YUCK!
