Today’s forecast in Albuquerque is 95 degrees and mostly sunny. And snow.

From where does the snow fall, you wonder?

Have a peek up in the cottonwood tree across the way from us.

What we’re just now starting to see fall is the seeds from the fruits of this lovely tree.

It’s the fluffy white seeds of female cottonwoods that give the tree its name. And sure, they’re annoying and they make a mess. Without a doubt, we’ll find piles of seeds everywhere over the next few weeks.

We’ll get over it though. As summer changes to fall at Morning Bray Farm, the leaves of our cottonwoods will turn bright yellow, creating a remarkable contrast with our clear blue autumn skies. We won’t remember the snow then. ♥
