Cottonwood Fairy Fuzz

The female Cottonwood polar trees along the  Guadalupe River behind our house are now filling the air with fuzzy seeds.  Sometimes when the wind blows, it looks like a snow storm or a great invasion of tiny white fairies. We know where all of the spider webs are on the house, garden, and our backyard caboose, WP668, because they are full of cottonwood seeds.  This happens every year but the volume of seeds is still awesome.
