Cottonwood Storm


For the last two weeks our house and garden have been in the annual dancing seed storm from the female Cottonwood poplar trees along San Jose’s Guadalupe River. Thankfully, we are now almost done with blowing fuzz for the year. All of my cactus have fluff caught in their spines. I will be watering down the garden all weekend. At least the white seeds make it very obvious where the spider webs are – giving me a target for the hose.

    I think it’s interesting that last year we had almost none, but this year the seeds are back. Still, it’s not as heavy as it was back in 2008 and 2009.

    no computer can predict it or where or when it will shower you
