Around this time of year there are a few trees near my apartment that get very excited and throw piles and piles of white puffs into the air! It’s kind of amazing.
The fluff gathers on peoples’ lawns, piling in corners like snow. There is so much of it! In some places it’s about 5 inches thick on the ground.
I think the trees are cottonwood trees. It’s one of my favorite spring/early-summer things. The air around my home is full of drifting white seed puffs like snow. So beautiful and ethereal. 🙂
