tree fluff

You see the white stuff on the picutres?

It isn't snow. It's some stuff coming from the trees every summer (I call it tree sperm).
And without merci it fills up your appartemnt, car and ENT cavaties.

Fortunatelly I don't have issues, but I also don't expect it to be hypoallergicm.
It even burns like hell.

So, no fun at all.

I just was in the country side and forests around moscow is no trace of it. It doesn't seem to be a specific russian kind of tree.

What leads me to the question why the the only tree they plant in they grey city is one that makes the biggest possible mess?!

They thought at the soviet period that populus the only tree (or the best) to plant in cities. Stable to anything ever, fast growing, releasing oxigen, fitocides and all that.... What is the german equivalent for the same aim by the way?

About this blog

This blog is a close up on Russia and the CIS. I am not giving you the big picture.
I would anyway fail. I am too long here. So beauty & decay,
education & corruption, high culture & kafka-style administration are meanwhile normal for me.
So this blog is like a painting from from Roy Lichtenstein... when you are with your nose on it :) You will just see the dots, not gaining any understanding of the whole.

Most things will look strange in this blog. But you can be sure, I would not live here, if there would not be a lot of great things here. Unfortunately, the weired stories are more interesting to tell & read.
Don’t judge Russia on this blog, if you want to know the country, come over and take a look by your own.
