An Oddity of Nature


This morning, while leaving on my 7am walk, I noticed that these little webs were all over my front yard. They were not there yesterday or now. They look like spider webs, but when I searched the Internet for a name I couldn't find anything that looked the same. My hubby said they were tent caterpillars, but (he's almost always right) the description I read did not fit. Can anyone out there solve the mystery?

Powdery mildew? That's all I could come up with.

We have them here in MI as well i think they are the popler tree seeds. The breeze collects them into piles. just a guess.

No idea here. I like james2285's idea though.
