It is that time of year when we are tormented with the light fluffy seeds from nearby trees. We call them cotton seeds. They get everywhere. My garage seems to be a natural vacuum for the devilish seeds. When you try to sweep them up they fly into the air and spread around more. A damn near Sisyphusian task!
Technically, this seed comes from the cotton wood tree which is an American Poplar. This Poplar has a tuft of cotton around it’s seed allowing it to be blown in the wind for quite some distance.
