Mating with the Wind

Our house and garden are covered with Cottonwood Fairy Fuzz every year when the female Cottonwood poplar trees along the Guadalupe River release their seeds. We are in the middle of this charming mess of fluff right now. Drifts of seeds line the edge of every walk. In the short distance between my office in WP668 and the house, I collect tiny tufts of fuzz in my hair and on my clothes. Every spiderweb is full.  Some photos:
