Cottonwood Snow, Part II

After the cold spell over the weekend - three days where the thermometer didn't crack 60 degrees, the longest June cold snap in the Twin Cities area since 1951, according to news media - the cottonwoods went back into production with a vengeance the last few days. Above is a birdbath sitting on my deck; below is part of my backyard, all bespeckled with cottonwood seed tufts. One bunch of fluff collected in front of my garage, and when I walked past it it swirled up like a tornado. Quite remarkable!
