I don't recall seeing this last year. I think I would have remembered. But now that everything is getting water to it on a regular basis, things are coming back to health. And the cottonwood trees are happier. But sheesh they make a mess! (I'm not talking about the trees in this photo ... the cotton in the air is from my three cottonwood trees that line my driveway. They are out of the photo on the left.) I looked out the window, and for a second, I thought it was snowing!
It's everywhere. It's on my deck, all stuck to any rough surface, in the fencing, in the rose bushes, etc. I imagine it probably only lasts a couple of weeks, but I am glad the trees are doing well.
