So what kind of snow doesn’t melt?!? Cottonwood tree seeds. Airborne fluff!
This was from just one tree. The entire intersection was just covered in white fluff!
So of course my inner gardening nerd came out and I did some researching. All these fluffy seeds form after the pollen is released. The trunks can be over 5 feet around and the trees can be 150-180 feet tall. That’s just huge! No wonder I feel really tiny standing next to some of these trees! We didn’t have trees this big in Texas. That saying “everything’s bigger in Texas” definitely doesn’t apply in this case!
