April in Arizona

April in Arizona! Arizona has amazing weather year round, but the spring is a particularly beautiful time of year here in AZ.  During the month of April we have an unusual phenomenon that happens in the green belt area of Camp Verde, Sedona and the Verde Valley... White stuff floating through the air! It looks like snow and while on rare occassions it does sometimes snow in April... This is not snow! It's Cottonseeds!  During April every year the cottonwood trees leaf out and release their seeds.  It is beautiful and sometimes slightly annoying if you happen to get them in your mouth! But can look deceptively like a light snowfall! Camp Verde, Sedona and the Verde Valley have many cottonwood trees some as old as 100+ years! For more of what makes Arizona unique, check out our blog!
