We've Got Snow on the Farm

Yes it was snowing last week here at the farm but from the huge cottonwood tree located in our yard. For several days the cotton is blowing similiar to snow in the winter.

I'd not noticed the tree before full of cotton on the branches, nature is beautiful. Every Spring we have the snow for a few days but in my hurry up world had not stopped to observe.

So think there is a lesson for myself and maybe anyone who reads this, we really need to stop~ look~ and listen when we are outside.

That is the first cotton tree I have ever seen! I agree, we should take the time and look around us!

We have cotton wood trees here too. And, just before it rains it smells like mesquite trees...very different then the midwest where it smelled like corn.

Twolefthands, these cottonwood trees grow very large as well. In the lil hamlet near us in the park are two of these trees, they are massive and the cotton is everywhere in town from them.
