Some white fuzzy stuff has been blowing off the trees for the past week. This is making me so sick. I am so allergic to what ever it is. Do you know what the white fuzzy stuff is???

It's the seeds, if you catch on and look at it closely you will see the seeds, pollen is also flying. I am having a very bad problem and trying to stay inside as much as possible.

because it is an allergen, the stuff that allergies come from, the pollen in from the flowers
