I'm looking for an image of poplar pollen to confirm that's what all the
"fluff balls" now floating in the wind here in New England are.
They are 1/2" to 3/4" in diameter and look a little like overgrown stuff
kids blow off dandelions.
My Googling has only shown me that this is the time of year when poplar
pollen is in the air, plus one reference to a line in a novel which
reads, ["Oh, just a minute. Don’t move." He reached across and plucked a
white ball of poplar pollen from her hair. He flicked it into the air.]
Am I on the right track with this, and can someone help me confirm this
by pointing to an image? A wager of honor rides on this. <G>
