Sticky Season

We have several of these trees.



They are a cotton-less cottonwood. I'm glad there is no cotton as that causes some big allergy problems for some of our family members. However, there is a price to pay. See all those seed pod things hanging off the tree?  Well, they are starting to fly!















They stick EVERYWHERE!





The worst is, they stick on the bottoms of shoes and when tracked into the house, they leave kind of a mustard yellow stain.


I don't think I'd better complain, though, because...


...at least it hasn't snowed in the last week!

We have that situation going on here too. BUmblebee gets them all over her body.

Our neighbor's tree drops them all over our front yard, roof and driveway. They clog up our gutters! Then they inevitable end up being tracked into our house. From there, they've been going directly into Ari's mouth! Bleck!

Oh dear! Although Bode has chewed on them I think it would be ever so much more dreadful to see sweet Ari chawing on them!
