Pokeing around the garden I decided to show you how pretty a cotton plant can be, prior to spinning and sewing it. The bloom starts out off white, turns pinkish, darkens and dries up and falls off.
(I think I better press the green part)
After the flower falls, the pod forms. It is about the size of a ping pong ball here.
I planted about 10 plants, just to observe. It is in fields everywhere here, but up close is very interesting.
I took these from last fall
a field near....
Have a good weekend! Stay Cool!
