Yep…that’s laundry lint. It took several months to amass that collection too. Each time I clear the lint trap, I add to my collection in a bag above the dryer. The collection grows along with the handful of mesh bags I save when I buy apples or tomatoes in bulk.
Spring is just five weeks away: prime nest-building season for our neighborhood birds. I’ll stuff those bags with handfuls of lint and then we’ll tie them high up in the trees. Birds (or squirrels) can pull little bits of soft lint through the mesh holes and carry it off to their nests.
Ah, the cycle of life.
