Autumn officially starts at 9:54 tonight, but our cottonwood trees have been in the fall spirit since late August.
Exhausted, I assume, by the lack of rain this summer, they’ve been jettisoning their leaves in great gobs, giving us an early glimpse of things to come.
So here we are, in a state of equilibrium - equal parts day and night, with only one way to go.
Cottonwood trees create such a strange, fairytale atmosphere—like you’ve walked out of June and into a world of fluffy, warm snow.
Wildlife and such
Guy 1: so hey there’s this tree that a lot of people seem to be really allergic to, and the white fluff it gives up is clogging a lot of our air ducts, what should we do?
Guy 2, the city planner: Lets just fuckin line the streets with them
…those Cottonwoods today
