The milkweed pods are poppin' and it's a world of fluff on the farm! It drives the farmers nuts, but milkweed is food for monarch butterfly larvae, and supplies nectar to a wide variety of insect. I think the flowers are pretty and I love their scent. And I can't resist grabbing handfuls of the floss as I walk along... so silky! One of those things you just have to reach out and touch.
Dainty little thing!

I don't think this one is milkweed but it's a perfect puffball!
Blowin' in the wind.
A Canada goose feather, which is fluffy enough to be included in this post!
Not milkweed, but still pretty darn fluffy!
A carpet of fluff! Magical.
