Cottonwood fallout

The cottonwood tree in the backyard is a lovely 35ft+ shade provider once it's gotten past the awkward spring phases: the dropping of sticky leaf buds and then the dropping of cotton. The past couple of days the cotton has been falling like crazy; it's in the car, my hair, the plants, on the pets. Hopefully last night's rain will mean the end of this craziness.

Wow! I guess you don't have allergies? I'd be sneezing up a storm. Fun pics. Lloyds a cutie. ;)
