Look what I found!

I found a stem of cotton..
This really was a surprise find and I love it..this bought back my very southern up bringing .Yes, I did pick cotton ,well maybe just a small flour sack full back in those days most were picking 100 lb bags.I put the stem in a vase on my side table in the dinning room .Sometimes small things in life just thrill me if I could just remember to stop and smell the roses..

I thought you lived in Iowa? And isn't cotton something like a zone 9 plant? It is such pretty pretty stuff -- I'd have put it in a vase too, if I hand't ruined it first by fondling all the fuzz off, LOL!

They look lovely. I too sometimes pick things and put them in a vase if I think they are pretty.

Wherever did you find cotton growing? It really is pretty, isn't it? I have a vase full of twigs from my back yard "thicket" that I thought I'd use for crafts, but right now they're just decoration!

That is just like seeing it in person Jacque ... and I have never been far enough south to see any. Thx for a great looks so soft and fluffy.... but with sharp pointy it "ouch" to pick? or do they pick the whole pod?
