Carders vs Populus balsamifera

The kids decided to collect poplar (cottonwood) fluff to make doll pillows... And I couldr resist the soft white piles.

Well, it turned into a bit of a war. There definitely was no spinnable fluff after the war was over and this photo is what my hand cards looked like after trying to clear the fluff out of them.

But, I won in the end. Me and a trusty vacuum cleaner!
