For kids to play with? HELICOPTERS!!!
They're as obnoxious as the oak catkins which are still being tracked onto the rugs every time someone (the most guilty someone being the dog) goes outside. However, I'll take catkins or helicopters (that's what my kids used to call them, too) over cottonwood seeds. We used to live next door to a cottonwood tree in Wisconsin and our window screens grew beards for weeks. Hello to the Queen!
Bonnie... you having me laughing!!! I know how much these little things annoy you :) Amanda found a whole cluster... a flower, she called it... of these helicopters the other day. I told her not to show you, because you certainly would have nightmares about it! ~ Suzy
I'm right there with you! Umpteen times a day, I'm out there skimming them from the koi pond. The only thing worse is the pecan trees dropping their seed clusters. They turn everything they touch brown!
The infamous helicopters! They're everywhere here, too:)
