Late spring/early summer snow

It was nearly 90 degrees today, so why is there snow on the edge of my driveway?

Well, it is not really snow. It is fluff from the poplar cottonwood trees in our yard. We have 3 giant poplar trees, and there are a lot more of them in the neighborhood. This time of the year it can look like a blizzard as the fluff floats in the air and collects in piles on the lawns. As you walk by it is so light that it swirls about your feet.

A good rain shower will take care of it, and soon enough it will be just a memory, until next year.
